Princeton Battlefield during Ten Crucial Days

Mark the 239th anniversary of the conclusion of the Ten Crucial Days of the American Revolution with a series of events at Princeton Battlefield State Park. Fought on January 3, 1777, the Battle of Princeton was a crucial turning point in the American Revolution and the first Continental Army victory against the professional British Army.

On January 2, join the Princeton Battlefield Society and Campaign 1776 for a lighting of more than 500 luminaries to memorialize the sacrifices of soldiers during the battle. The 4:30 p.m. lighting will be followed by music and refreshments. Please RSVP and send any questions to [email protected]. More information.

On January 3, meet at Princeton Battlefield’s Clarke House at 6:45 a.m. to experience the Battle of Princeton in real time, as it actually happened. British Army historian William P. Tatum III will guide you along the steps of American and British units at the same time of day as the actual battle. A surprise musket demonstration will occur at some point during the tour. Wear good walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothes, and bring a flashlight. Please RSVP and send any questions to Kip at [email protected]. More information.
