War Memorials

With a military history going back to the founding of the country, Trenton is full of visually arresting war memorials commemorating soldiers who fought and died in American conflicts. The city's iconic Battle Monument is located by the site of, and commemorates the First Battle of Trenton. A bronze statue of General George Washington stands atop a 150-foot-tall column in this Beaux Arts memorial completed in 1893. Bronze reliefs for the base were created by famed Philadelphia artist Thomas Aikins. They can now be viewed at the NJ State Museum. The elegant Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Battle Monument was constructed in 1909 and can be viewed at its original site in Cadwalader Park. In 1930, the grand Soldiers' and Sailor's Memorial Building, known as the Trenton War Memorial, was built. Far from being a somber monolith, the War Memorial houses the dynamic Patriots Theater, which has a year-round schedule of concerts. Trenton's most recent memorial is the World War II Memorial, dedicated in 2008 and located opposite the State Capital building on State Street.
