mid-Atlantic region.
[Graphic] Map 1 with link to higher quality map.
(Drawn by Brian M. Baker)

1. Why would Pennsylvania have been a likely place for Moravians to establish permanent settlements?

2. Calculate the distance between Bethlehem and the other Moravian settlements of Nazareth, Lititz, Lebanon, Hope, and Emmaus. What do you notice about the names of these settlements?

3. How far is Bethlehem from Philadelphia? Do you think the Moravians ever traveled to Philadelphia? If so, why?
