From 1775 to 1783, New Jersey took center stage in the struggle for America's independence. Pivotal battles were fought in Trenton, Princeton, Red Bank, Monmouth, and Springfield. The American army encamped for three winters, two at Morristown and one at Middlebrook. Policy was made, major campaigns planned, and speeches written, including General George Washington's farewell orders to the army, at Rockingham.
This guide provides an introduction to the buildings, battlefields and encampment sites whose stories contribute to our understanding of New Jersey's role in the birth of a new nation.
