Colonel Edward Hand Reenactment


Citizens of Lawrence, exercise your historic rights! On Saturday, January 2, 2010 join the 48TH annual Colonel Hand Historic March. Help us reenact the day in January 1777, when right here in Lawrence (Maidenhead) Township Colonel Edward Hand and his Pennsylvania riflemen delayed over 6,000 British troops. This delay saved the day for General Washington and the entire Continental Army (the patriots). Arrive at the Lawrence Township Municipal Building (Maidenhead Court House) located at 2207 Lawrenceville Road (Route 206) at 10:00 am. Meet his excellency General George Washington, the marching Mayor, a Pennsylvania Rifleman and Colonel Edward Hand. Even if you are not quite ready to delay the British, come to the program from 10:00 am to 10:40 am. There will be a memorial tribute to march founder Bob Immordino including the canon firing by Coryell’s Militia. All marchers will enjoy cider, donuts, cookies and tricorner pastries at the end of the march. Return transportation will be provided. Learn more about the pivotal role played by Lawrence Township in molding our nation. What happened here 233 years ago changed the course American history.
