Due to concerns regarding COVID-19 transmission, the first stage of the program on Jan. 2 has been altered.

The pre-reenactment introductory lecture by historian and author Larry Kidder, originally scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., will be presented online prior to the event.

Event registration (or check-in for those who are pre-registered) will still be open as of 8:30 a.m., and visitors are welcome to arrive at or after that time, explore the battlefield, and meet with both American and British re-enactors prior to the reenactment, according to a press release.

Following a brief introductory presentation at 9:50 a.m., attendees can watch the narrated re-enactment starting at 10:00 a.m., with British and American re-enactors, including artillery.

Following the reenactment, the New Jersey Sons of the American Revolution will hold a wreath laying ceremony at the Memorial Grove behind the colonnade on the battlefield at 11:30 a.m.

Tours of the historic Thomas Clarke House will also be offered.
