Congress on the Run

Lancaster, Penn., flag

Lancaster, Pennsylvania, home to Lancaster James Buchanan, the nation’s 15th president, and to congressman and abolitionist Thaddeus Stevens, served, during the American Revolution, as the capital of the United States for one day, on September 27, 1777.

This occurred after the Continental Congress fled Philadelphia, which had been captured by the British. The revolutionary government then moved still farther away to York.
