Princeton Battlefield State Park

New Jersey

500 Mercer Street
Princeton, NJ 08540

The Battle at Princeton took place in early January of 1777, and was an important follow up to the victory against the Hessian forces at Trenton in the December prior. While the numerical significance of Princeton was small, Washington's victories prior to taking winter quarters forced the British to evacuate central New Jersey and also elevated the still shacky confidence of the new nations army. 

The Battlefield Park is administered by the State of New Jersey Department of Parks and Forestry.
