Visit New Jersey: Princeton Battlefield State Park

I had no idea that Princeton played such a huge role in the American Revolution.  According to the website for the Princeton Battlefield State Park:

In one of the fiercest battles of the American Revolution, American troops under General George Washington surprised and defeated a force of British Regulars on the morning of January 3, 1777. American soldiers, pushed back by a strong British assault, were rallied by Washington who rode his horse between the British and American lines, leading his men to his first field victory over British troops. The Battle of Princeton capped 10 days of maneuvering and fighting, including three battles, which began with Washington’s famous December 25, 1776 crossing of the Delaware.

The Princeton Battlefield State Park also happens to be a great place for a hike.

We saw all types of foliage, and even some deer!

The historic Clarke House is open for tours.

The Princeton Battlefield State Park is a great place to visit, whether you're a history buff, or simply want to explore the outdoors.
