Washington Crossing Historic Park will hold its annual Memorial Day ceremony on Sunday, May 29 at 1 PM at the gravesite of Continental soldiers located near the Thompson-Neely House.

The observation will include a colonial color guard, fife and drum music, Revolutionary War reenactors, veterans, and other honored guests. At the ceremony, the Daughters of the American Revolution will dedicate a plaque at the original gravesite of 24-year-old Captain-Lieutenant James Moore. Moore served in Captain Alexander Hamilton’s New York Artillery Unit before his death December 25, 1776.

After the dedication, American flags will be placed on the graves. The gravesite marks the resting place of soldiers who died during the Continental army’s December 1776 encampment in Bucks County. Although no Americans were killed during the Delaware River crossing and the First Battle of Trenton, some soldiers succumbed to exposure, disease or previous injuries. Captain-Lieutenant Moore is the only veteran buried in this plot whose identity is known.
