March to Trenton

Celebrating the 235 Anniversary of the Battles of Trenton



On December 31st, 2011

 There will be a special Crossing of the Delaware in Durham boats at first light at Washington Crossing Historic Park, Pa.. to GW Crossing State Park, NJ.  where the troops will be bussed to join the march.  The marchers will start walking at 7am, then march over the original route to Trenton.  We plan to arrive just before the start of the first Battle of Trenton.

This will be over a 9 mile march.  We will use the Original Route.  There will be at least one water stop, but it will be a long, hard walk with full gear directly into the battle.
Participants are limited to those reenactors whose units are registered with the Old Barracks in Trenton for the Battles.
