Meet the Author Washington Crossing Book, Thursday, December 1 at 7:00pm Library Gallery

Lecture and meet and greet with the authors of the newest edition to the Images of America Collection by Arcadia Publishing & History Press: “Washington Crossing”.

The illustrated lecture on Washington Crossing will explore the history of the site of General George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River with his Continental Army in 1776 to the Battle of Trenton– through the creation of both parks that mark its place in memorial. The talk will detail the history chronologically and bring the story of both the NJ and PA parks and the people who helped create them up to the present day, where an annual reenactment of the crossing continues every year. The authors will also examine Emanuel Leutze’s famous 1851 masterpiece Washington Crossing the Delaware and its importance as a symbol of American patriotism.

The talk will last about 45 minutes with time for questions. The authors will have books to sell and autograph @ $24 each.
