Day 94 (July 19): New Jersey
Trenton was the place where Continental Army, under George Washington, crossed the Delaware R. and surprised the Hessian army in a pivotal victory for the American Revolution. It was also one of the industrial capitals of America - the city's motto, "Trenton makes, the world takes". The same cannot be said of Trenton today, having suffered the same fate as the other former American industrial strongholds.
Princeton is home to Princeton University, so there's a bunch of little restaurants, cafes, and architecture that reminded me of Oxford, in England. After Princeton, I hurried east to catch a ferry, ending in Belford.
