During the event, American flags will be placed on 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. James Moore, a 26-year-old artillery captain from a New York regiment, is the only veteran buried in this plot whose identity is known.
