From Trenton to Princeton, and from Middlebrook to Monmouth to Morristown and more, George Washington spent more of the Revolutionary War in New Jersey than in any other state. For the anniversary of Gen. Washington’s departure from winter headquarters at the Wallace House, George Washington returns to remember the Middlebrook Cantonment of 1778-79 and his experience of the American Revolution in New Jersey.

 

Please bring your own lawn chairs or blankets for this outdoors presentation featuring actor-historian David Emerson of History on the Hoof as George Washington.
