Although there are a few bakeries that still roll and cut the cookies by hand, some now use a mechanized process for making the cookies in order to meet the demand. While this does not affect the taste, the machine-made cookies have been criticized for not being as thin as their handmade counterparts. Spaugh was born in Salem (now Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)), North Carolina, the eldest of three sons of Rufus Armenius Spaugh (1865–1953) and Anna Louise (Hege) Spaugh (1872–1933). Spaugh graduated from Tinsley Military Institute in Winston-Salem in 1913, and from Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 1916 (he had earned extra credits at Tinsley, enabling him to graduate from college in three years). He earned a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Moravian Theological Seminary in 1924, and a Master of Arts degree from Davidson College in 1931. Pennsylvania The Munsee were the Wolf clan of the Lenape, occupying the area where present-day Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York meet. The first recorded European contact occurred in 1524, when Giovanni da Verrazano sailed into what is now New York Harbor. Like most native peoples of the Atlantic coast, the Munsee were quickly devastated by European diseases such as smallpox and influenza, and those who survived were forced inland. By the mid-18th century, one group of Lenape people began to follow the teachings of the Moravian missionaries. The Moravians (Moravian Church), a Protestant denomination from Herrnhut, Saxony, now in Germany, in America based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, sought to protect their converts by creating separate mission villages in the frontier, apart from both European settlers and from other native people. The most prominent missionary among the Munsee was David Zeisberger. In 1772, he led his group of Christian Munsee to the Ohio Territory, which he hoped would isolate them from the hostilities of the approaching American Revolution. However, in 1782, a force of Pennsylvania militiamen, in search of Indians who had been raiding settlements in western Pennsylvania, happened upon a group of ninety of Zeisberger's Christian Munsee and rounded them up in the village of Gnadenhütten (Gnadenhütten massacre). Although the Munsee truthfully pleaded their innocence, the militia took a vote and decided to kill them all, including the women and children. birth_date '''Bethlehem Hungarian''' was an American soccer club based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania that was a member of the American Soccer League.

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

'''Bethlehem''' is a city in Lehigh (Lehigh County, Pennsylvania) and Northampton (Northampton County, Pennsylvania) counties in the Lehigh Valley region of the eastern portion of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 74,982, making it the seventh largest city in Pennsylvania, after Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown (Allentown, Pennsylvania), Erie (Erie, Pennsylvania), Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania), and Scranton (Scranton, Pennsylvania). U.S. Census Bureau, 2010. Retrieved 25 March 2011. Of this, 55,639 were in Northampton County, and 19,343 were in Lehigh County.

Bethlehem lies in the center of the Lehigh Valley, a region of 731 square miles (1,893 km²) that is home to more than 800,000 people. Together with Allentown and Easton (Easton, Pennsylvania), the Valley embraces the '''Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton, PA-NJ metropolitan area''', including Lehigh, Northampton, and Carbon (Carbon County, Pennsylvania) counties within Pennsylvania, and Warren County (Warren County, New Jersey) in the adjacent state of New Jersey. Smaller than Allentown but larger than Easton, Bethlehem is the Lehigh Valley's second most populous city. In turn, this metropolitan area comprises Pennsylvania's third-largest metropolitan area and the state's largest and most populous contribution to the greater New York City metropolitan area.

There are four general sections of the city: central Bethlehem, the south side, the east side, and the west side. Each of these sections blossomed at different times in the city's development and each contains areas recognized under the National Register of Historic Places. Zip codes that use the address Bethlehem totaled 116,000 in population in the year 2000. These zip codes include Bethlehem Township (Bethlehem Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania) and Hanover Township (Hanover Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania).
