Colonel Peirce would have been a man of mark in any community. He was for a series of years the magistrate of the town of Lincoln, and repeatedly filled offices of trust and honor with great fidelity to his constituents. He was greatly respected by his fellow citizens, and died much lamented.

"Major Abijah Peirce of Lincoln, who had just been elected Colonel of a Regt. of minute men, came with only his walking stick and had to wait until a gun had been captured from the enemy. In a few hours he was armed and equipped and ready for action. Duty officers as well as privates, were armed with muskets in this an initial engagement..."
