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

June 1 - October 30, 2022
Long Rifles of the American Revolution: How Lancaster County Craftsmen Helped Win the War
Historic Rock Ford in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, consisting of the circa 1794 General Edward Hand Mansion and the John J. Snyder, Jr. Gallery of Early Lancaster County Decorative Arts, will be hosting a new exhibit entitled Long Rifles of the American Revolution: How Lancaster County Craftsmen Helped Win the War from June 1 through October 30, 2022, at the Snyder Gallery.

The exhibit, guest-curated by Pennsylvania long-rifle authority John Kolar, will include approximately 35 Revolutionary War-Era rifles from the collection of Historic Rock Ford as well as loaned rifles and related accoutrements from museums and private collectors from across the nation. Items from lending institutions include such places as Mercer Museum and the State Museum of Pennsylvania as well as from the private collections of John Kolar, Paul Ware, David Hansen, and the late Joe Kindig, III, just to name a few.

This exhibit represents the first---and perhaps the only----occasion that these weapons have been brought together in a single exhibition.  It will be accented by storyboards, maps, and illustrations from the work of renowned military-history artist Don Troiani all to place these artful weapons in their proper historic context.
