  • I went for the battle re-enactment and history tour at 6:45 AM, which is when the real battle started. It was a bitterly cold morning, and I just barely lasted for the whole thing. One of the Patriot ...  more »

  • Actually, we were looking for the monument itself... which is downtown Princeton, next to the city office building. But if you want to learn more about the battle, then you should probably go to the park also.
  • This is a really nice family excursion. Besides the battlefield itself, there is a colonial house with a small museum of period furniture and crafts. The tree that General Mercer died under survived until about 2005. The current tree is from an acorn of that tree.
  • Great parks. Lots of trails. I’m not sure if they’re really well mapped out but the scenery is beautiful.
  • An essential part of history. Easy access, street and on-site parking by the Clarke House.
  • Big, open field. Often not to crowded. Clean and well maintained. Whether you go there for the history, to hike the trails, or to just enjoy a picnic you will not be disappointed.
