Alexander Hamilton and the 24 Cannons at the Battle of Trenton

Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 2:00 pm

Special lecture by David Bosted held in conjunction with the events of Patriots Week at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie. 

The program will follow the movements of all 24 of the cannons on the streets of Trenton during the Battle of Trenton. The talk will demonstrate why the 18 American cannons — including the two six-pounders commanded by Alexander Hamilton — were decisive in the victory over the Hessians, who had six three-pounders. A four-pounder cannonball will be on display during the talk. Presented by Urban Planner and Museum Trustee David Bosted. For more information click here.
