Princeton Battlefield

One of the finer ways to spend a July 4 afternoon is on the grounds of the Princeton Battlefield. Chances are, you'll see Historian John Mills, who in stature, bearing and voice seems the very embodiment of 1776, offer a detailed account of the Battle of Princeton.

After the attending militiamen execute some impressive shots from a cannon, John then dons authentically imperfect spectacles to read the Declaration of Independence.
