Artist's Description

564 views as of 21 Feb 2012. I am standing on the Kingston Bridge that was built in 1798. You can still make out the carved words in the stone: 45 M(miles) to Phil, 50 M to NY. The British invasion of New Jersey began in November 1776 and was aimed at occupying Philadelphia. As Cornwallis’ troops advanced southwards, they occupied portions of the state. George Washington marched his troops through Kingston(originally King’s Town) after trouncing Lord Cornwallis at the Battle of Princeton. During the Revolution, an earlier wooden bridge, on this very spot, had been destroyed by Continental troops who hoped to delay the British retreat from Princeton. The mill in this picture was burned by the British in December 1776. After 2 more fires, it was re-built in 1888. This is the very one now standing. It is currently privately owned and under extensive renovation while the owners live in the upper floors. 30 Sep 2009 @ 0947 If you look closely at the water, you will see it is starting to drizzle.
