Glenside’s North Penn VFW to host historical marker dedication in December

The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission recently announced that a historical marker dedication will take place in honor of the Battle of Edge Hill on December 7 at 11:00am at the North Penn VFW Post 676 in Glenside.

The Battle of Edge Hill in Abington Township, one of the last events of the American Revolution, was named a historical marker by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission in December. The Glenside VFW was named the site of the marker in June.

A historical marker recognizes a significant person, place or event that shaped Pennsylvania’s development. The Battle of Edge Hill is one of 36 new markers across the state, including 11 new markers on behalf of Philadelphia.

Unmarked graves of fallen soldiers from the Battle of Edge Hill are on the grounds of VFW 676, which sponsored the dedication and is located at 2519 Jenkintown Road.
