The event will be held in a historically-significant area.

One of the most historically-important areas in Bucks County will be celebrating Memorial Day in a unique fashion.

Washington Crossing Historic Park will hold its annual Memorial Day observance on May 28 at 1 PM at the gravesite of Continental soldiers. The gravesite is located near the Thompson-Neely House, about two miles south of New Hope at the intersection of Route 32 and Aquetong Road.

The observation will include a colonial color guard, a fife and drum corps, Revolutionary War reenactors, veterans, and other honored guests. During the ceremony, American flags will be placed on all of 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.
