Jack Warren, executive director, shares the only list known to survive from the Revolutionary War of the uniform and personal effects carried into battle by an American soldier. Anthony Morris, Jr. was a captain in the Pennsylvania militia when he was killed in the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777. The list of his personal effects, written on the battlefield where he died, reveals the types of equipment carried into battle by an average American soldier and how the Battle of Princeton was fought. The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes with time afterwards for up-close viewing of the document.
