Meet at the Clarke House

Donation: $10 per family

Come to the beautiful rolling terrain of the Princeton Battlefield State Park for a walk in the park, and an exciting presentation on the Battle of Princeton.   Join us and hear the fascinating story of the Trenton and Princeton campaigns, December 25, 1776 to January 3, 1777, culminating with the battle on the Stony Brook Quaker Settlement farms of William Clarke, and his brother, Thomas Clarke. Learn how Washington and his outnumbered and untested troops with their backs against the Delaware River, fought a fierce battle in Trenton on January 2, then stealing away overnight, outflanked a superior British Army, marched through frozen windswept farm land then fought again the next morning in Princeton.  Hear how the the troops approached the field of battle and moment by moment managed to turn imminent defeat into a stunning victory that launched a nation.   Thank you for helping to bring the Princeton Battlefield State Park to life!  Please RSVP using this form, sending an email to[email protected]or calling 609-389-5657
