Revolutionary New Jersey: Forgotten Crossroads and Towns of the American Revolution
April 7, 2019 at 1:00 PM
The Middlebrook and Pluckemin encampments were of critical importance to the American military during the swirling campaigns of 1777 and 1779. Yet, these iconic places, like many other historic sites in the Raritan Valley and Somerset County area have been virtually ignored in history. Most now are buried, obliterated, built over by suburban creep, rarely marked and shrouded in mystery and mythology. In his new book Revolutionary New Jersey-Forgotten towns and Crossroads of the American Revolution, author and historian Bob Mayers rediscovers these sacred local places with new information found in original military documents, British and Hessian accounts and by on foot exploration. Admission $20 per person, Members $10, children 12 and under free.
