New Jersey in the American Revolution, Presented by Arthur S. Lefkowitz

The Historical Society of Bloomfield will present “New Jersey in the American Revolution.” This 50-minute slide presentation is based on the presenter’s book The Long Retreat. The program focuses on the British invasion of New Jersey in late 1776, which ended with Washington‘s famous Christmas night raid on Trenton. The speaker will demonstrate that the closest the British ever came to winning a military victory in the American Revolution was at New Brunswick, New Jersey, on December 1, 1775.
