Come to the hallowed ground of the Princeton Battlefield State Park for a walk in the park, and an exciting presentation on the Battle of Princeton.   Join us and hear the fascinating story of the Trenton and Princeton campaigns, December 25, 1776 to January 3, 1777, culminating with the Battle of Princeton, fought here at the Princeton Battlefield Park which at the time was the Stony Brook Quaker Settlement farms of William Clarke, and his brother, Thomas Clarke. Learn how Washington and his outnumbered and untested troops with their backs against the Delaware River, fought a fierce battle in Trenton on January 2, then stealing away overnight, outflanked a superior British Army, marched through frozen windswept farm land then fought again the next morning in Princeton.  Hear how the troops approached the field of battle and moment by moment managed to turn imminent defeat into a stunning victory that saved the spirit of the revolution.   Thank you for helping to bring the Princeton Battlefield State Park to life!
