Greater Somerset County-Hub of the American Revolution
Author and Historian Bob Mayers to speak at the next Heritage Trail event!
'Greater Somerset County-Hub of the American Revolution', will be the topic of this program. Bob Mayers was lost and stumbling through the thick woods atop the first Watchung ridge above Route 22, in Bridgewater, at the site of Washington's 1777 Revolutionary War Middlebrook Campground. He was searching for a rocky lookout used by General George Washington at Middlebrook, now in Martinsville. This location was lost in history, but Mayers found a record of it in a 1785 British account. Come and discover the rest of the story and much more.
Sunday, September 23rd from 2-4 pm.
