Celebrate the 293rd birthday of Hugh Mercer with us! Mercer fought at the Battle of Culloden during the Jacobite uprising, and later came to America. He served in the French and Indian War, and later practiced medicine in Fredericksburg before becoming a Brigadier General in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Mercer died of wounds suffered in the Battle of Princeton in January 1777.

In honor of his birthday, there will be an open house at the Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, featuring cake, punch, a bagpiper, music, and tours. This event is FREE!
