Princeton Battlefield

In 1777, the peaceful winter fields and woods of Princeton Battlefield were transformed into the site of what is considered to be the fiercest fight of its size during the American Revolution. American troops under General George Washington surprised and defeated a force of British Regulars. Coming at the end of "The Ten Crucial Days" which saw the well-known night crossing of the Delaware River and two battles in Trenton, the Battle of Princeton gave Washington his first victory against the British Regulars on the field. The famous Mercer Oak, once stood in the middle of the battlefield, and The Clarke House served as sanctuary for General Hugh Mercer who died there nine days later. The house contains period furniture and Revolutionary War exhibits.
