It's Take a Chance Day! It's also the second (and final) day of Morristown National Historical Park's annual Encampment Weekend at Jockey Hollow. Why not take a chance and visit the reenactor camps and ask how their Revolutionary forebears survived the hard winter in that very spot! Kids can learn to drill just like Continental soldiers, the whole family can watch colonial games -- it's more than battles! Today's schedule: www.nps.gov/morr/planyourvisit/encampment-weekend-2017.htm
The British are coming! The British are coming! See a reenactment of the occupation of Trenton by Beitish forces in 1775 at the Old Barracks on December 3rd ...
The British are coming to Trenton! Come to the Old Barracks on Saturday December 3 as the 17th Regiment of Infantry returns for the first time since December of 1776. This event will commemorate the occupation of Trenton by British troops just weeks prior to the Battle of Trenton, and offer visitors a view into this often misrepresented side of American history.
Throughout the day you can interact with reenactors as they portray the daily lives of British soldiers. These men will drill, perform musket demonstrations, cook over the outdoor camp kitchen, sew winter clothing, and more in this unique event that will show a side of the Revolutionary War not often seen before.

There was a one car accident at Crossroads - ShopRite Plaza in Toms River which seems to have closed down Scottrade and Sports Clips due to the damage to the front of the building.
