Saluting New Jersey’s Role in the American Revolution
Nestled between our then-fledgling nation’s capital of Philadelphia and the British forces’ stronghold in New York, New Jersey soil was the battleground for nearly 300 major military engagements—as well as hundreds more skirmishes. Most significantly, the “Ten Crucial Days” following General George Washington’s infamous Delaware River crossing—which turned the tide for the Continental Army—occurred within our state’s borders.
No wonder New Jersey has been proclaimed the Crossroads of the American Revolution. Experience for yourself the historic sites, memorials and monuments that find their home in charming towns, cozy villages and vibrant cities throughout the state to commemorate our nation’s legendary journey to victory.
