PHOTOS: Remembering the British Invasion of New Jersey
235th anniversary of the British Invasion was commemorated at Historic New Bridge Landing.
Members of the 35th Regiment of Foot and the 3rd New Jersey Regiment represented both sides of the conflict by performing military demonstrations which showed the life and times of the common soldier of the American Revolution.
Cooking and Baking demonstrations took place in the Out-kitchen behind the Campbell Christie House, and visitors were able to tour the historic homes on the site. Refreshments were available at the Tavern, located inside the Campbell Christie House.
Inside the Steuben House, Todd Braisted gave a presentation on the raising of the 4th Battalion, Bergen County’s Loyalist unit, which was actually formed at New Bridge in the days immediately following the British Invasion.
