Meet Trenton: Declaring Independence, Then and Now
Did you know that on July 8, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was read publicly for the first time in three places - Philadelphia, Easton, Pa., and Trenton, NJ? In this episode of Meet Trenton, we talk with David Niescior, a historical interpreter with the the Old Barracks Museum, and Algernon Ward Jr., a social activist, community organizer, and historical reenactor with 1st Rhode Island Regiment, about how history helps us understand the present, what the reading of the Declaration of Independence meant during colonial times, and what its ideals of freedom, equality, and liberty mean for us today. Meet Trenton aims to introduce Princeton University and wider community to the people and organizations both preserving the past and leading the city forward. Want to learn more?
