On our tour this year of the sites around Trenton and Princeton, we discussed the importance of actions that occurred around Mount Holly in New Jersey. Often overlooked, the Rev War Alliance of Burlington County has been working to redevelop the site of the Battle of Iron Works Hill. Emerging Revolutionary War discussed the importance of this action with historian Adam Zielinski on one of our Sunday night chats.
After a successful fundraising, the Alliance will be hosting a ribbon cutting for the public at the site of the monument (128 Pine St, Mt Holly, New Jersey) this Saturday (December 11) at 11 a.m. There will be reenactors and fife and drums. This project demonstrates how important local preservation groups are in memorializing the sites of our nation’s founding and the telling the story of the fight for freedom for future generations.
