This weekend, the Princeton Battlefield Society brings the epic battle to life. We’re talking British troops marching to Palmer Square, loyalists being singing over their allegiance, soldiers preparing food by the fire, and more. Morven hosts the day, from 10am-6pm https://www.theprincetonbattlefieldsociety.org/events.html
