Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“Do you feel that you have a clearer picture of Princeton’s role in the history of the American Revolution after seeing the Princeton 1783 events at the Princeton Battlefield?”


“I think so and I am learning a lot more as the day progresses. I am waiting for the festivities to begin later to see what my favorites will be.”

Christopher Missouri, with Caleb, Brandon, Deanna and Shantell, Trenton

“Definitely. I just came from Michigan two days ago. This is my first visit and everything I am learning about 1783 is happening today. The interest of the community in preserving these spaces that are so important is impressive.”

Gretchen Earhardt, Kalamazoo, MI

“Absolutely. I always understood the battle and what happened here but now seeing these folks reenact the event just brings it to life and makes it that much more poignant. I really enjoyed listening to the very talented Barracks Fife and Drum Corps.”

Chris Chrzan, Skillman


“Yes. I enjoyed listening to the music and learning about how they marched, and how it inspired the troops to continue with their march and the long days ahead of them. It was a really hard life and I am glad that I didn't live back then.”

Reaney Kunkler, Potters Run, Princeton

“Yes, absolutely. I didn't even know that there was a battlefield in Princeton since I am from Boston. Now I am aware of it and I think that it is great that you celebrate this special day. I was impressed with seeing the cannon fire, the traditional dress, and the cooking methods. We saw eight traditional instruments being played which was really neat.”

Kristina Desmond and Maja, Boston, MA
