Battlefield Tour – The Battle of Monmouth
September 16, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Join us as we explore the the Battle of Monmouth. Using Morristown, N.J., as our base of operations, this experience will include a Friday evening dinner and lecture given by award-winning historian Ricardo A. Herrera, Ph.D., of the U.S. Army War College discussing the events that led to the battle. Accompanying the dinner and lecture, a guided bus tour of Monmouth Battlefield the following day will closely examine the events that transpired during the siege and explore various key locations that comprised it. The guided tour will be followed by a visit to the Monmouth County Historical Association to view the well-known painting Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth by Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze, and tour the Covenhoven House, a private home that Gen. Sir Henry Clinton temporarily made his headquarters prior to the battle.
Bus seating is limited to fifty-three attendees. Registration for this additional tour option is being honored on a first-come, first-serve basis and closes on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
