Easton Heritage Day July 10th

Come join us - and a large throng of other reenactors, crafters, and history-related displays and pageants, at Easton's Heritage Day Celebration on July 10, 2016:

This is a big event, and the weather is supposed to be near-perfect.  The festivities kick off around 10:00AM and run until evening, with a concert and fireworks.

While the event commemorates the first reading of the Declaration of Independence in Easton in 1776, for the purposes of the Frontier Guard, Easton was significantly the site of the Treaty of Easton, 1758, which by and large brought peace between the Lenape and the British colonists in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  The original treaty is on display in the Sigal Museum, which will be open during Heritage Day.  Don't miss it.
