Camden County Historical Society Will Map Part of the American Revolution in South Jersey

With a $30,000 grant from the National Park Service, the Camden County Historical Society will begin to map part of the American Revolutionary War in South Jersey.

The society will locate points of significance – including routes troops traveled – during the Battle of Gloucester, which took place in 1775. The map will focus on parts of Haddon Heights, Mount Ephraim and Gloucester City and show how the area was impacted by the battle.

The grant was awarded as part of the American Battlefield Protection Program. The Camden County Historical Society will hold public meetings to get residents involved in the project.
