Two battle re-enactments, an 8-mile march and a 5-mile tour

Bear witness to the events of December 25, 1776 through January 2, 1777 and learn their significance.

Muster up. It is time for the FreeWalkers regiment to march with the Continental Army in observance of the 243nd anniversary of Washington crossing the Delaware and the subsequent battles of Trenton. Cross the Delaware with us and march down to Trenton as Washington's troops did after the crossing and prior to the Battle of Trenton, and then witness perhaps the most important battle of the Revolution re-enacted on the same streets where it all took place 242 years ago. Tour the area with us and return to town in time to observe the re-enactment of the second battle. Join us for part or all of the day's activities.
