1800's: TRENTON DESTROYS HISTORIC REVOLUTIONARY WAR LANDMARKS

The Hamilton Township Public Library's Local History Collection honors Trenton's upcoming "Patriots' Week" celebration with these two graphics which picture and give historic background information on two of the main players in the battle of Trenton. One must wonder what ever possessed the town fathers back then from destroying rather than preserving these two historic Revolutionary War structures. Those who are not history minded would dismiss those of us who are for historic preservation with the lame excuse that "progress" is more important than preservation. How sad!
