Revolutionary Princeton, 1774-1783: The Biography of an American Town in the Heart of a Civil War

Thursday January 21, 2021
7:00 PM

The story of Princeton between 1774 and 1783 is a microcosm of the struggles faced by ordinary Americans during the Revolution, struggles intensified by Princeton's geographic location within the State which saw more military activity than most and on a road constantly used to move troops and their supplies. Life in Princeton connected to just about every aspect of the Revolution. The stories of people who lived in Princeton, or who spent time there because of the Revolution, helps us better understand the hitherto untold importance of this town beyond the one, well-known, day of battle. This case study of a small New Jersey town located at the crossroads of the Revolution reveals the very human consequences, costs, and benefits of the war experienced by "ordinary" people.

Presented by Larry Kidder, a retired history teacher who taught for 40 years, including 32 years at The Hun School of Princeton. Larry has been a volunteer historian and historical interpreter for the Howell Living History Farm in Hopewell for over 30 years and is a member of the board of the Princeton Battlefield Society. The author of two books on rural New Jersey history and three on aspects of the American Revolution in Mercer County.

Registration with an email is required, so we can send you a link to connect through GoToMeeting. You will receive the link approximately 24 hours before the program. CONTACT: Mercer County Library System hopeprogs@mcl.org
