I saw a mock hanging of her during the 200 year birthday celabration in Lawrenceville. They did it on the football field. The hanging was close to the old field but was alittle further around the hill. The tree was in the , now, Mills Terrace area. Does anyone remember why she was hung? She was also a first, remeber what she was the first of?
