In the late afternoon of January 3, 1777, New Jersey Militiaman William Churchill Houston reached the Princeton Battlefield where he “had a most dismal prospect of a number of pale mangled corpses, lying in the mud and blood”. They needed to be buried, but whose task was that? Can we tell who buried whom, not only at Princeton, but on other battlefields of the War of Independence along the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail as well? When? How many hours, days, months later? Where? Individually or in mass graves? In natural crevices? Lakes? Naked or dressed? Officers and other ranks together or separate? How long do they remain in the ground? Are they ever found? Who would dig them up and why? Can we identify them? What happens with the skeletons? Historian Dr. Robert Selig addresses these topics and more in a talk illustrating the close connection between history and archaeology.
