Fredrick Leaser was commissioned in 1777 to transport the State House Bell, which came to be known as the Liberty Bell, from Philadelphia to Allentown, where it was hidden from British troops in Zion’s Reformed Church at Church Street and Hamilton Mall.
The first Leaser Trek re-enactment to commemorate the Revolutionary War-era move, which Willard was a part of, took place on September 11, 1976.
Join us as we hear from Willard about this 12-wagon caravan and its 27-mile journey.
