REENACTOR REGISTRATION FOR EXPERIENCE
THE BATTLE OF PRINCETON 2023
The Princeton Battlefield Society invites you and your unit to participate in the Experience the Battle of Princeton reenactment on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at the Princeton Battlefield State Park. The event will begin at 9:45 a.m. Reenactors may begin arriving on site at 7:30 a.m.
In January 2022 we had over 600 spectators at the battlefield and are planning to increase that number significantly this coming January. A Task Force is already meeting to discuss the ways and means to make that happen.
We will provide an honorarium of $25 per reenactor to each unit based on actual attendance. One check will be sent to each unit’s designated contact following the event. Each Artillery unit participating will receive an additional $350 honorarium for bringing a field piece with checks being sent to the unit’s designated contact following the event.
We bring the following to your attention:
- Advance registration is mandatory for this event. No walk-on registrations will be accepted. Registration for the event will close on Monday, December 19, 2022.
- Since parking at the battlefield is at a premium, we ask all reenactors to share a ride if possible (i.e. 2, 3 or more per car). Carpooling will greatly assist us in alleviating parking strains.
- Artillery units will be given priority for close proximity parking.
- Parking for reenactors will be in the grassy area adjacent to the battlefield. Princeton Battlefield Society volunteers will guide parking.
- We will have pastries and coffee available for all reenactors free of charge.
- As in 2022, a wreath-laying ceremony at the Colonnade-Memorial Grove will follow the reenactment (approximately 11:45) and you are invited to participate.
Please register and provide a current copy of your unit's proof of liability insurance via the form below. Following registration, additional information will be shared with all unit points of contact in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have questions, please direct them to:
- Ken Gavin (Commander of Continental Forces) – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Jerry Hurwitz (Commander of Crown Forces) – email@example.com
We are excited to host Experience the Battle of Princeton once again and hope you will join us.
Online registration is closed.
