Keystone United Leif Ericsson Celebration 2007

Filed under: Events, Keystone United News, Media — Keystone United @ 7:46 pm

A video of Keystone United members and supporters gathered along the boat house row section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Several individuals spoke in honor of Leif Ericsson’s discovery of North America, discussing the success of early American settlements. The evening was later filled with excellent musical performances at a nearby park.

*For the record: The statue at which we gathered is not of Leif Ericsson
but that of Thorfinn Karlsefni, another successful Scandinavian explorer. Believed to be the first European ever born on American soil.
