Recreating the Battle of Trenton in a War Game at Washington Crossing State Park

Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1:00 pm

The Battle of Trenton will be recreated by using miniature figures, dice and “Flint & Steel” rules developed by Richard Kane who will also be managing the game. Visitors can observe and some will be able to participate as the historic military commanders by issuing orders to their military units. As Colonel Rall can you save the Hessians from being captured by General Washington? It’s your chance to change history! The Battle of Trenton will be recreated at 1 PM at the Visitor Center Museum at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, New Jersey.

The Visitor Center Museum will be open from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. featuring The Swan Historical Foundation’s Collection of 500+ Colonial and Revolutionary War artifacts.

The Visitor Center Museum can be reached from I-95 by taking the Trenton/Lambertville Exit (this is the first exit in N.J. heading north and the last exit heading south). Head north on Route 29 for 2 ½ miles and turn right at the first traffic light. Park Entrance will be on your left in a ½ mile. Enter the park and follow the signs to the Visitor Center Museum.

For more information call (609) 737-0623.
