TRUTH !!
During the American Revolution, Lancaster was the capital of the United
States for one day, on September 27, 1777, after the Continental Congress
fled Philadelphia, which had been captured by the British. The revolutionary
government then moved still farther away to York, Pennsylvania.
FACTOIDS;
Lancaster was capital of Pennsylvania from 1799 to 1812, after which the capital was moved to Harrisburg. In 1851, the current Lancaster County Prison was built in the city, styled after Lancaster Castle in England. The prison remains in use, and was used for public hangings until 1912.
