What Makes The Princeton Battlefield So Important?
The Battle of Princeton was the site where:
On the morning of January 3, 1777, brave soldiers beat the odds and defeated the world's only super power. They fought to create a nation based on freedom and democracy, not for themselves, but for future generations.
Today, new battles...
The Thomas Clarke House under attack from "the elements" and the iconic Mercer Oak is being threatened by disease. Now, we must honor the sacrifices of those who fought here and preserve their memories and this sacred land.
We hope you enjoy learning more about the Battle of Princeton, The Princeton Battlefield Society and how you can play a part in protecting this cherished piece of United States history.
