Just GPS it, and you are there - not hard to find. You can actually park very close to it, get out of the car and take your picture. Use discretion, it is a bit sketchy, but all you really need is to be there...More

For such an important event, there's little in New Jersey that honors the battle. The barracks are your best site to visit. This Battle Monument is useful in that it will show you where the battle happened. All that is here is the column you...More

The monument is now in a depressed and somewhat dangerous area of Trenton. There is nothing there that would enrich a visitor's interest in American history. Doing a "drive-by" is best. Stay in your car.
