Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) will hold a free lecture titled “The Doans & The Revolution” on Sunday, May 7 at 1:30 p.m. The lecture will be held in person at the park’s visitor center, 1112 River Road in Washington Crossing, Pa.

During the lecture, Mercer Museum Curators Annie Halliday and Clint Flack will discuss the notorious Doan gang and their activities early in the American Revolution. The Doan gang was a group of British loyalists, the most notorious members being five brothers and one cousin from the Doan family of Plumstead, Pa. The gang had around 30 members who were accused murderers, traitors and horse thieves, and who also ferried British prisoners of war to British lines. They were also guilty of robbing tax collectors, their most famous crime being the theft of the Bucks County treasury in 1781.
