Pre-Owned History Book Sale and Battlefield Tours, Princeton Battlefield Society

Sunday June 13, 2021
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Princeton Battlefield Society (PBS) will continue its 50th Anniversary Year and its 2021 program of educational and commemorative events on Sunday, June 13, at Princeton Battlefield State Park on Mercer Road in Princeton. That day's program will run from 12 noon to 3 pm and will feature several activities postponed from Memorial Weekend due to inclement weather.

A major feature of this event will be a sale of pre-owned American History books, many donated by several noted Princeton area scholars of the American Revolution and the "Ten Crucial Days" campaign of Dec. 25, 1776-Jan. 3, 1777. Other features of the program will be Battlefield tours at 12:30 and 2:00 led by Larry Kidder, author of "Revolutionary Princeton" and many other recent books and articles on the American Revolution in New Jersey. Also on hand will be David Price, author of several notable works on the Ten Crucial Days campaign, to sign copies of his books. In addition, the Battlefield Historical Educator, Will Krakower, will present a musket firing demonstration. Finally, a benefit sale of items at the 'PBS General Store' (hand-painted miniature soldiers, maps, PBS apparel, and Mercer Oak mementos) will be underway.

All the proceeds of sales of books and merchandise at this event will benefit PBS' History and Heritage Fund and its principal project – a new Battle of Princeton exhibit at the Thomas Clarke House Museum on the Battlefield. Full details on the event can be found on the PBS website at www.pbs1777.org
