A scenic winter tour of campus, cemetery, battlefield and town, with a little history mixed in.

A casual walk giving full treatment to Princeton New Jersey's offerings, on and off campus.  We will visit the site where Washington cemented his gains after crossing the Delaware and assured the Revolution of survival.  He will attend the homes and graves and many notable people.
