There's also a Swedish American History museum near the stadiums that has a lot of good information about New Sweden.

Both can be correct at the same time.

I didn't say that what you said is wrong, but what I've seen backs up what Pine & Vine was taught. There's also a reason for the old Swedish church. There were Swedes in the area, before the English. There were also some Dutch.
Henry Hudson first had contact with the Lenape, along the Lenapewittock(the Delaware River)in 1609.

Later in the 1620s Dutchmen, from New Amsterdam, founded an outpost in modern Delaware, which they called "Zwaanendael" and is today called Lewes. They left because of land conflicts with the Lenapes.

Swedes didn't show up until the 1630s.

But it is true that Swedes colonized places that are in modern day Philadelphia while the Dutch did not. Maybe that explains the confusion.

I do plan to check out the videos. Right now isn't a good time for me, however. The Dutch came back to the area, after New Sweden was established. Both left their mark on the area, to a degree.

Totally agree! Having them online obviously increases who's exposed to them.

Agree that it’s a well-done series. I’ve caught a couple of them, but it’s been just by chance, since our tv isn’t on too much. Thanks for sharing the fact that they can be found of YouTube (seems I can’t rep you for a while).
