New Jersey Battlefields
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Janet was eleven years old, and she was having a tough year in school. She was studying the American Revolution in social studies. She just couldn't get interested in it. It seemed so boring to her. She had done OK on her tests but not as well as she would have liked. Her assignment was to write a report on a special event in the American Revolution that interested her. She knew she had to do a good job.
2     Janet talked to her parents, and they came up with a plan. They felt that if Janet visited an historic site she might be more interested in history.
3     "It's so boring, Mom and Dad. I don't feel like going far away anyway."
4     "Honey," her father said. "We don't have to go far away for history. Many important battles of the American Revolution took place right here in New Jersey."
5     "Here?" Janet questioned.
6     "You'll see," said her mother.
7     That weekend, Janet and her parents drove on I-95 North to Trenton. They entered Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, New Jersey. They paid to park the car, but entry into the park was free.
8     Janet saw people enjoying the outdoors on the 841 acres of the park. People were enjoying the recreation facilities. Some were picnicking, some were hiking, and some were horseback riding.
