That is the title of an exhibit at Rock Ford, the Lancaster home of Revolutionary General Edward Hand. There are 35 long rifles on display by Beck, Dickert, Ferree, Fesler, the Baker family and others. There will be many related items displayed, such as horns and bags. Chances for seeing an exhibit of this size, quality and historic significance are few and far between. It will run through 30th October. Below is a link to Rock Ford's website, where you can click through to info on the exhibit.

I'll have to get out there for sure. It's only about an hr from me. Thought I'd seen all the museums in or near Lancaster.

Absolutely worth the trip!!!!! I was there Monday a week ago, a really good exhibit. Several of these guns are in Shumways books. Here’s the chance to see these guns in the round. BJH

I just got back from this exhibit. It is a well done, beautifully put together display. It is well worth the time and the price of admission.
Just spent the day there myself, really impressive collection and historical land mark.

Thank you for posting this, SOLANCO. This is a museum I have heard of but never made the time to get to (about 50 minutes away from home). We really enjoy summertime day trips to historic homes and sites like this.
