Donegal Presbyterian ChurchBeneath this Witness Tree a new born patriotism found notable expressionOn a Sunday morning in September 1777 an express rider came to tell the congregation of Donegal Church that the British army under Lord Howe had left New York to invade Pennsylvania. This news demanded from them all a new attitude toward the facts which challenged them to show proof of their patriotism. Their pastor.... the Rev. Colin FcFarquhar had been accustomed to offer prayers for the King of England. Pastor and Congregation gathered under this historic tree, and together joined hands, and under its shade pledged their loyalty to the cause of liberty and the founding of a new nation in the western land.
