Baltzer Spengler, Jr., was one of the Committee of "Freeholders and Inhabitants" of Yorktown, organized December 16, 1774, for the purpose of procurring "the earliest intelligence of any material transactions" concerning the English oppression of their compatriots in Boston. They devised measures for raising a fund to defray the expense of communication intelligence and alleviating the wants of the poor at Boston. This committee, upon the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, was known as the "Committee of Safety," and rendered most invaluable and effective services in raising and arming troops in the cause of American independence; for, as Col. Thomas Hartley said, "the York District had armed the first in Pennsylvania and had furnished more men for the war and lost a greater number of men in it than any other District on the Continent of the same number of inhabitants." Baltzer Spengler, Jr., was 2nd Lieutenant of Captain George Eichelberger's Company in 1775, known as the Fourth Company. York was not incorporated during the first forty-six years after it was laid out. On the 24th of September, 1787, it was charted as the "Borough of York," and Baltzer Spengler was one of the first assistant Burgesses after the incorporation. President George Washington visited York on July 2, 1791. He met by a delegation from York that included; Gen. Henry Miller, Major John Clark, Col. Thomas Hartley, Lieut. Colonels David Grier and John Hay and Hon. James Smith. Washington was quartered at the inn run by Baltzer Spengler, Jr., two houses west of Court House Square. Baltzer was born at York, York Co., Pennsylvania, on 16 April 1735. He was the son of Johan Balthasar Spengler and Mary Magdelena Ritter. He married Christina Messerschmidt. Baltzer died on 1 August 1798 at York Co., Pennsylvania, at age 63. His body was interred in August 1798 at York Co., Pennsylvania. The inscription on his tombstone in German reads,

"Zum Andenken Des Baltzer Spengler's Der Ein Zartlicher Gatte Ein Nachsichtsvoller Vater Ein Gutter Burger Gewesen Und Den 1st August 1798 Im 64ten. Jahr Seines Alters Gestorben Ist."

The translation reads as: In Memory of Baltzer Spengler He was an Affectionate Husband An Indulgent Father A Good Citizen And Who Died the 1st of August 1798 In the 64th Year of His Age..
