Mercer took their name from Hugh Mercer, a doctor and Brigadier General in the Continental Army. Originally born in Scotland, he eventually relocated to the US and became a key member of George Washington's inner circle. His death at the Battle of Princeton just a few miles from our HQ became a rallying point of the Revolution. His name also adorns the county Mercer is located in.
