2023 Annual Meeting
The Lawrence Historical Society will be holding its annual membership meeting on Sunday, February 26th, from 1-3 pm in the Lawrence Township Library on Darrah Lane.
Following board elections and other Society business, author, historical interpreter and township resident David Price will present an illustrated talk entitled, “The Most Pivotal Moment in the American Revolution?” In it, Price will offer a fresh perspective on the “Ten Crucial Days” that fundamentally altered the course of our war for independence, and, in particular, the role of Colonel Edward Hand and his rebel skirmishers at this epic moment in American history.
Although largely neglected by historians, the Battle of Assunpink Creek—including the delaying action fought by Hand’s men in Maidenhead (today’s Lawrence Township)—arguably was the most pivotal event of this period and perhaps the entire conflict.
