Today Is the Anniversary of John Fell's Arrest

Today is the 244th anniversary of  Founding Father John Fell's arrest at his house (now 475 Franklin Turnpike) by 22 British Loyalists.

The Fell House hopes to again present reenactments of Fell's arrest once the pandemic is over.

After his arrest, John Fell was imprisoned in the notorious Provost Jail in New York City. Fell kept a secret prison diary that documented British atrocities at the jail.

You can read more about Fell's journal here.

A big thank you to Raoul Mallalieu for the video and Heard's Brigade for all they have done for the historic John Fell House.
