Historic Washington Crossing trip

What a gem! It really is what it says it is...a library about the American Revolution from the Pennsylvania perspective.

I went there for research and also to see a program where someone impersonated a famous person. They have a lot of different activities. It quiet and removed from traffic.

If you are into history, real history of the American revolution, this is for you. This is not a place to take kids. This is for serious research. I never knew that this library even existed. If you are a Daughter or Son of the American Revolution this is for you.

This library is the gold standard for anyone wishing to research American Revolution history. Built by a grateful immigrant, the meeting hall is an architectural wonder. Do contact the reference librarian for information on upcoming events. The length of time that I have allocated below has to do with the scope of your research. Once you begin-it may be difficult...

Tucked away in Washington Crossing, about 2 miles from the park this exceptional library is specifically focused on the Amer. Rev. Talks, films, and use of the library are open to the public.

Tour with a very knowledgeable and entertaining university professor of Washington's attack on Trenton and Princeton was very well done.

If you are researching the American Revolution, the David Library is a must. Great and friendly librarians can offer ideas you haven't considered and provide a wealth of information to guide you through the process.
