To the Editor:
Last January 3rd was the 243th anniversary of the epic Battle of Princeton in 1777, where Gen. George Washington reversed an American retreat, put the British army on the run, and saved the American Revolution. Princeton residents should be justly proud to have the place where this occurred, a unique national historical treasure, in our midst.
Thus, the Princeton Battlefield Society, the Officially Recognized Friends Organization of the Princeton Battlefield State Park, was delighted to participate in a solemn commemoration ceremony on January 3. The January 6th issue of Town Topics published a beautiful front-page photo of a color guard procession marking the event. more
