Crossroads of the Revolution


January 11 (rescheduled from January 4)

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm


Updike Farmstead

The story of Trenton in the American Revolution is much more than just the two battles that preceded, and led to, the Battle of Princeton. The town played several key military and political roles throughout the war and, due to its geographic location, became a crossroads of the Revolution. Author Larry Kidder will examine these roles and how the stories of Trenton and Princeton were closely entwined throughout the war for independence.
