AT THE BATTLE OF TRENTON

Sunday, January 7, 2018

2 PM

 

 Special lecture by David Wm. Bosted

Held in conjunction with the events of

Patriots Week

 

The program will follow the movements of all 24 of the cannons on the streets of Trenton during the Battle of Trenton. The talk will demonstrate why the 18 American cannons — including the two six-pounders commanded by Alexander Hamilton — were decisive in the victory over the Hessians, who had six three-pounders. A four-pounder cannonball will be on display during the talk. Presented by Urban Planner and Museum Trustee David Bosted.
