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.
