Introducing Princeton Battlefield

July 20, 2012 by Walter Gallas

I’m Walter Gallas, the National Trust’s project manager for Princeton Battlefield. I’ll be posting regular updates on the work we are doing to protect a portion of this important Revolutionary War site.

In naming Princeton Battlefield –specifically the site of Washington’s counterattack–to the National Trust’s annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places, we knew we would be taking on a challenge. We hope to find a solution that ensures that the landscape where the critical turning point of the Battle of Princeton took place isn’t lost to development of faculty housing by the Institute for Advanced Study.

We will be reaching out to the leadership of the Institute, and I will keep you posted on our progress.

Join the movement to save and sustain historic African American places. The African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund will help every American see themselves, their history, and their potential in our collective story and national cultural landscape.
