On its way to the successful Revolutionary War battle at Monmouth Court House in 1778, the Continental Army of 12,000 men marched from Mount Airy in Amwell Township to the neighborhood of the Baptist Meeting House in Hopewell. The army camped along the face of the Sourland Ridge and in fields belonging to the Stout family. Local historian David Blackwell will create an exciting picture of the army in motion, and discuss the events and participants of its time in the vicinity of modern Hopewell Borough.
