January 3, 1777 was a critical day in American History. With leadership from General George Washington, patriotic troops defeated British Regulars at the Battle of Princeton …the turning point in the American Revolution. Two hundred thirty-five years later, you are invited to recognize this victory by renewing or starting your membership in the
Princeton Battlefield Society!

The Princeton Battlefield Society is a non-profit 501(C)3 volunteer organization dedicated to the enhancement, preservation, and development of Princeton Battlefield State Park and surrounding lands. We are the guardians of this national treasure. The Battlefield and Clarke House Museum are National Historic Landmarks and the Society members assist in the interpretation, public education, research, grounds maintenance, and fund raising connected with the historical events and natural features of the Park.

We are a membership organization. If you have a passion for the American Revolution, or for the 18th century, or love history in any aspect, then we invite you to join with us. This remarkable battlefield and the men who fought here deserve to be remembered. At present we are actively working on preserving the battlefield from development by the Institute for Advanced Study. Join us and help! The Fight Continues! The Preservation Defense Fund is now open. 
We welcome donations to defray the costs; after all you can't fight a battle without ammunition. If you can make a donation, make your check out to: Princeton Battlefield Society, P.O. Box 7645, Princeton NJ 08543
Please be sure to put "PDF" in the memo field of your check.

To accomplish all this, we need your participation and generosity! Click here for Corporate Sponsorship information.
