Washington’s Landing in New Jersey

December 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Experience “the rest of the story” of George Washington’s fateful trip across the Delaware in 1776! Can you imagine rowing through ice floes and then trudging through a blizzard in the middle of the night, with miles to go before your destination is reached – especially when that destination is a battle to decide the fate of your country? But what happened once the troops landed in New Jersey?

Johnson Ferry House

On December 11 please join State Park historians, the Washington Crossing Park Association, the First Rhode Island Regiment and other NJ-based reenactor groups who will give the public an opportunity to experience both the Crossing and the March to Trenton through the eyes of the men and women who lived it.

Reenactors will patrol the lower park, encouraging visitors to undertake a brief “march’ over the Park’s pedestrian bridge and up to the Overlook, where cozy fires and skilled reenactors will regale them with tales of the rich history that took place in Mercer County. The event will feature programming throughout the day. as well as cider, donuts and ongoing tours at the Johnson Ferry House.
