Murphy announces $25 million in funding for restoration of Revolutionary War sites across New Jersey

By ANDREW HARRISON Staff Writer

Revolutionary War sites across New Jersey will receive federal funding through the state’s budget for resto ration and preservation efforts in prepara tion for America’s 250th anniversary on July 4, 2026.

Gov. Phil Murphy joined by legisla tive, state, county and municipal officials at Washington Crossing State Park in Hopewell Township announced on Nov. 29 that $25 million in American Rescue Plan funds allocated in the state budget will be invested in 10 Revolutionary War historic sites.

“We are here to underscore the impor tance of the investment of $25 million in federal American Rescue Plan funds through our state budget,” Murphy said.

“That $25 million will be invested in 10 Revolutionary War sites across our state to not only help restore them, but make them ready for future visitors including making them all ADA (Americans With Disabili ties Act) complaint.”

The 10 Revolutionary War historic sites are: Washington Crossing State Park in Hopewell Township, Trenton’s Old Barracks, Battle Monument in Trenton, Princ eton Battlefield State Park, Monmouth Battlefield State Park, Proprietary House in Perth Amboy, The Indian King Tavern in Haddonfield, Wallace House in Somerville, Boxwood Hall in Elizabeth, and Rocking ham in Kingston.

“All across our state in every county is a house, a field or a public building that points directly to our Revolutionary his tory,” Murphy said. “This is the history we must keep alive as our country nears its 250th birthday. It is this history, which this investment aims to preserve and protect.”

The country’s Semiquincentennial an niversary marks the signing of the Decla ration of Independence and 250th year of independence.

“Our state and local community here in Hopewell has a great storied history of facing and overcoming enormous challenges,” Hopewell Township Mayor Courtney Peters-Manning said. “As you know we are standing right where George Washington and his troops landed when they crossed the Delaware River on the way to the Battle of Trenton.”

She further said, “These brave Ameri

cans faced inadequate supplies, a cold un forgiving winter, and a deadly enemy, but they got in their watery boats and faced the challenge with bravery, commitment to each other and to our uniquely American ideals.”

According to the Governor’s Office, the $25 million investment from federal Ameri can Rescue Plan funds will be allocated to the New Jersey Department of the Trea sury and distributed to Revolution NJ, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission and Crossroads of the Ameri can Revolution, to help restore the Revolu tionary War sites.

Carrie Fellows, executive director of Crossroads of the American Revolution Association, noted that Crossroads to gether with the New Jersey Historical Com mission forms Revolution NJ, which is the state designated public private partnership tasked with planning New Jersey’s Com memoration of the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution.

“We are so grateful for funding, which will enable major visitor readiness projects to occur at state owned Revolutionary War sites,” she said.

Crossroads and state officials identi fied key needs at 10 state owned sites that have the potential, along with a handful of

county and privately owned sites to serve as the visitor ready core for Revolutionary War Heritage Tourism.

“We developed an investment plan for those 10 sites that included three primary components, (one) address historic resto ration needs, (second) upgrade facilities to meet industry standards for visitor readi ness and third was to develop a plan for sustainable staffing and visitor readiness into the future,” Fellows said.

Fellows further said that they will seek to secure private donors to participate in building on the $25 million investment from the state.

According to Murphy, the $25 million is not the last of the monies that will be spent on this effort and the monies can come from a variety of sources including philanthropic, private, corporate or others.

“New Jersey is incredibly historic and our role in the Revolutionary War is sec ond to none, but often overlooked, even for New Jerseyans,” Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-19) said. “The Battles of Princeton and Trenton singlehandedly reenergized the fighting efforts of the men and women involved in that fight.”

He added that the $25 million invest ment is part of the process to recapture

Hit and run

Law enforcement officials are seeking the public’s assistance in the investigation of a hit and run that occurred at the New Jersey Transit Park and Ride that injured a female pedestrian, according to Ciccone and Fritz, Jr.

Old Bridge police responded to the Meleta Way Overpass following the report of a hit and run at approximately 7:49 p.m. Nov. 28, according to a press release through the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Upon their arrival, authorities located the victim, who was struck while crossing the street at the New Jersey Transit Park and Ride. It appears the victim was dragged approximately 100 feet before the vehicle fled the scene, according to the press release.

Authorities transported the victim to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where she is being treated for her injuries, according to the press release.

At present, authorities believe a black, four-door Dodge Ram pickup truck was involved in the crash. The pickup truck was last seen driving past the Powerhouse gym located at 1091 Route 9 in Parlin, accord-

ing to the press release.

Authorities are seeking the assistance of any witnesses who were in the area at the time of the crash.

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Steven Connolly of the Old Bridge Police Department at 732-721-5600 Ext. 3821 or Detective James Alleva of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-4011.

Funding

(Continued from page 4)

New Jersey’s rightful place in American History.

Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) noted New Jersey’s story includes the contributions of Black and Indigenous soldiers during the war.

“It was an integrated regiment that ferried Washington across the Delaware on Christmas 1776. By the end of the war, a full quarter of the American soldiers marching to Yorktown were Black or Indigenous,” she said. “Their contributions must also be remembered as we celebrate the 250th year of the greatest country in the world.”

Gov. Murphy announces independent review of state’s response to COVID-19 pandemic

Gov. Phil Murphy has announced the beginning of an independent review of New Jersey’s handling of the COVID-19 pan demic, including the state of readiness in early 2020, and how the state responded to the many challenges that emerged over the last three years.

The review, which will contain recom mendations to enhance the state’s prepared ness for a future public health crisis, will be conducted by a team at Montgomery Mc Cracken Walker and Rhoads, in conjunction with the management consulting firm Boston Consulting Group, according to a Nov. 28 press release from Murphy’s office.

New Jersey is the first state in the nation to commission an independent and comprehensive review on the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the press release.

The team at Montgomery McCracken Walker and Rhoades will be led by Paul Zoubek, who served as First Assistant At torney General during the administrations of Republican governors Christie Whitman and Donald DiFrancesco.

Zoubek has extensive experience in emergency management, having served as

the No. 2 official in the Department of Law and Public Safety during the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and he has conducted a number of high-profile investigations of state government over the years, including a review of the New Jersey State Police’s boxing program conducted last year.

Boston Consulting Group is regarded as one of the world’s leading management consulting firms, with extensive expertise advising companies and governments on organizational structure across the globe, according to the press release.

“The COVID-19 pandemic was one of the biggest challenges our state and nation has ever faced,” Murphy said. “Throughout the pandemic, my responsibility as Gover nor demanded that I make every decision based on the available data, facts and sci ence in order to preserve the health and safety of all 9.3 million residents, regardless of the politics.

“My responsibility as Governor also demands a full and comprehensive review of how the state was prepared for and re sponded to the pandemic, so we can take

the steps to better prepare future adminis trations for a public health crisis.

“While COVID-19 is still present in our state, nation and world, we have moved from the pandemic to the endemic phase and now is the right time to undertake such an independent review.

“As a widely respected, apolitical and ex perienced state and federal prosecutor, Paul Zoubek is exactly the right person to lead this review, and has the experience in emer gency management and government investigations that makes him perfectly suited for this task. I am grateful to him, the rest of the team at Montgomery McCracken Walk er and Rhoads, and the Boston Consulting Group for agreeing to take on this impor tant project,” Murphy said.

The review of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic will include, but not be limited to, the state of readiness in New Jersey for a pandemic in early 2020, promi

nent emergency policy decisions that were made by the New Jersey government, the pandemic response with respect to vulner able residents, including members of con gregate care settings, and the state govern ment’s efforts to continue core functions, including providing direct services to resi dents, according to the press release.

The review will also examine the man agement of public health aspects of the pan demic, including testing, vaccinations, per sonal protective equipment procurement and distribution, and coordination of the health care system and of health informa tion around COVID-19.

The review will conclude with a comprehensive report that is expected to be re leased in late 2023 and will contain recom mendations for enhancements and reforms to better prepare New Jersey for the next public health crisis, according to the press release.
