Long Rifles of the American Revolution: How Lancaster Craftsmen Helped Win the War

Event Details

Jun 01 - Oct 30

Historic Rock Ford is delighted to be collaborating with guest curator John Kolar. We anticipate that the exhibit will showcase approximately 30 rifles. The rifles featured in the exhibit are being loaned by museums and private collectors from across the nation and will be used to describe the pivotal role played by the long rifle in winning American independence. Visitors will be able to examine different rifles while also engaging in the story of the war by highlighting their use in several key battles including the siege of Boston, the battle of New York, Trenton, Saratoga, Kings Mountain and the Miller Block House as well as on the Frontier.
