“Crossroads of the Revolution: Trenton 1774-1783” by Larry Kidder
Tuesday, September 26 | 7 PM
Reception at 6:30 PM
Larry Kidder will present a lecture on his new book “Crossroads of the Revolution: Trenton 1774-1783” with a strong focus on the role of the Trenton Barracks. The story of Trenton during the American Revolution is a microcosm of the struggles faced by ordinary Americans during the Revolution, struggles intensified by Trenton’s geographic location in the State which saw more military activity than others and on a road constantly used to move and supply armies. Life in Trenton connected to just about every aspect of the Revolution. The story of the people who lived in Trenton, or who spent time there because of the Revolution, helps us better understand the hitherto untold importance of their town beyond the one well known day of battle.
