Traversing the Ten Crucial Days Bus Tour
December 27, 2019
Spend a day retracing the December 25 crossing of the Delaware and the American and British military engagements at Trenton, Princeton and areas in-between. On the Traversing the Ten Crucial Days bus tour, historical interpreters Larry Kidder and Roger S. Williams will tell the remarkable story of these ten days that breathed crucial new life into the apparently expiring American Revolution.
The events are discussed in the context of the local, strategically important central New Jersey towns, villages, and farms. These locales were occupied by people of diverse backgrounds; with varying religious practices such as Quaker, Presbyterian, and Anglican; and with complex views on loyalty to the Revolution or the King. Hear how the terrain, weaponry and weather influenced the ways the battles were fought and how the lives of the local people were disrupted by them. See where armies marched, fought and struggled to survive on an otherwise peaceful landscape, while the course of human history hung in the balance.
Cost is $125 per person and includes bus fare, lunch, and donations to Washington Crossing Historic Park, The Washington Crossing Park Association in New Jersey, The Old Barracks Museum in Trenton and the Princeton Battlefield Society.
