"Part of the battle on Jan. 3, 1777, was waged on 22 acres of gently sloping farmland now owned by the Institute for Advanced Study. The institute--an independent, private research institution that counted physicist Albert Einstein among its faculty--is adjacent to the 85-acre Princeton Battlefield State Park. "But that section of the battlefield was never incorporated into the state park, and the institute is reviving a plan to build housing for 15 families on eight of the 22 acres. That has Hurwitz, president of the Princeton Battlefield Society, and the society's activists ready for battle." -- http://www.nj.com/timesoftrenton/st...ews-10/1186656374167530.xml&coll=5&thispage=1 I visited the park almost exactly 2 years ago. I'm surprised at this sentence from the article: "The main map stand placed by the battlefield flagpole in 1964 fell apart piece by piece in recent years and only its crumbling bricks remain." A map stand (not "the main map stand"?) was certainly intact and a good, detailed map illustrating the battle's tactical movements was on it and perfectly readable in August 2005. If that was the main map stand, I wonder what happened in the intervening 2 years. It's a nice park with nice surroundings, but yes, it needs a lot more interpretive signage.
