I suppose you have witnessed the re-enactment of the Crossing of the Delaware. I would love to see it.

No I regret I haven’t. However years ago when I used to go out to Washington’s Crossing, Pa. my wife and I always took in the displays of the muskets and other weaponry. There were authentic Brown Bess’s and other types of muskets as well as pistols and sabers. Then about 14 years ago these displays were first shunted off to a far corner of the museum and then soon they were gone completley, under the guise of ‘’renovation’’. They haven’t returned since. However to NJ’s credit The Trenton Barracks were renovated some years ago. New Jersey, northern New Jersey particularly abounds in Revolutionary as well as Pre-Revolutionary history.
