Crossroads of the Revolution

The Historical Society of Princeton and The Princeton Battlefield Society are pleased to present a lecture by Larry Kidder

“A meticulous, compelling, and well-researched account of how the American Revolution pivoted around a village in southern New Jersey”. – Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize Winning Historian

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 military and political roles throughout the war and, due to its geographic location, became a crossroads of the Revolution. Author Larry Kidder will examine those roles and how the stories of Trenton and Princeton were closely entwined throughout the war for independence. Larry’s book, CROSSROADS OF THE REVOLUTION: Trenton 1774 – 1783, will be available for sale. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit educational programing at both the Historical Society of Princeton and the Princeton Battlefield Society.
