1884: STRANGE BUT TRUE: DESTROYING HISTORY
Reading over the millions of pages of past newspaper articles dealing with the incredibly interesting past of the city of Trenton and its Revolutionary War involvement, I am completely dumbfounded that the dunderhead town fathers of the past 150 years gave such little reverence to the countless historic sites that once dotted the most historic Revolutionary War city in the whole northeast. What in the world ever possessed them to destroy these historic structures just to satisfy their quest for "progress?" Incredibly short sighted and stupid. It is a fact that there are an unfortunate few in high places whose interest in preserving these treasures are not impressed by our historic sites. The recent attempt to bury the old mill behind the State House is a prime example.
