The Hanover Associators (or Volunteers) originated at a meeting on June 4, 1774, of the inhabitants of Hanover, Lancaster County, PA.  A Resolution adopted at the meeting stated: "That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to Heaven and our rifles." The flag of the Hanover Riflemen was adopted at the same time.
