Edward Hand of Pennsylvania was a physician before the war. His brigade consisted of two Pennsylvania regiments and two Canadian. The Canadians joined the American army during the 1775-76 invasion of Canada.

In 1780-81, Pennsylvania troops commanded by General Anthony Wayne occupied the huts Hand's Brigades had used the previous winter. The Pennsylvanians mutinied on New Year's Day, 1781, and marched to Piladelphia to present their grievances to the Continental Congress.

They finally moved from the ground about 11 o'clock at night scouring the grand parade with round and grape shot from four field pieces, the troops advancing in a Sold Column with fixed bayonets.
