The Daffodils Remember


Revolutionary War Image

This colonnaded monument commemorates the unknown soldiers of The Battle of Princeton on the 3rd of January 1777, in New Jersey. After the Battle of Trenton, British General Howe sent a large force of professional military to New Jersey. General George Washington was in command of the 5000 American rebels. Washington decided to once again launch a surprise attack against the British. His plan succeeded; the defeated British removed their soldiers from most of New Jersey and American morale was greatly boosted.
