The Battlefield in Spring

This scene of re-enactors taking the roles of British and American units, practicing drill, field maneuvers, and fieldcraft on an April day, could have been a tableau from more than two centuries ago. Princeton Battlefield Park was the subject of new skirmishes this year as the Institute for Advanced Study encountered fierce opposition from the Battlefield Society over its plans to build faculty housing on the edge of the park.
