Date: January 07, 2017battle-of-princeton

Time: 10:00 am

At 6 pm, luminaries will be placed at the Princeton Battle Monument and British Army Historian William P. Tatum III, Ph.D., will explain the background story of the Princeton Battle Monument on Stockton Street, just north of Morven. The Beaux Arts style monument is one of the few of its kind in the United States. Completed in 1922 and dedicated by President Warren G. Harding, the monument’s story provides colorful insights into the long history of battle commemoration in the town. Tatum will conclude his presentation with a blow-by-blow account of those portions of the battle that took place within walking distance of the monument, providing a sneak peek for Sunday morning’s Real Time Walking Tour of Princeton Battlefield.
