to the Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum, site of America’s first military training academy, the Pluckemin Cantonment. The Vanderveer house served as headquarters for Gen. Henry Knox during the winter of 1778-79.  A National and New Jersey historic site, the Vanderveer house interprets Dutch colonial life in America as well as the stay by Gen. Henry Knox and his family.

Colonel Jack Jacobs (U.S. Army retired), a Medal of Honor recipient and military analyst for NBC/MSNBC News, will be the honored guest at the French Alliance Ball.


“Given the significance of the JVH and Pluckemin Artillery Park in United States military history, it is entirely fitting that we honor a widely respected military hero like Colonel Jacobs at the French Alliance Ball,” commented Robin Ray, President of the Friends of the Jacobus Vanderveer House Board of Trustees.





…Elegance with a French flair is returning to the Somerset Hills this Spring! The JVH is planning a premier benefit event, Saturday, May 16, to commemorate the “French Alliance Ball” that was held at the Pluckemin Artillery Park in 1779.  

A specially commissioned painting of General George Washington triumphantly celebrating the French Alliance in the company of artillery officers at the Pluckemin Cantonment will be the featured item in the live auction at the French Alliance Ball, May 16, at Trump National Golf Club.
