Jan. 25, 2012 - PRLog -- Princeton, NJ:   The Thomas Clarke House at Princeton Battlefield State Park has received a generous donation of a 42" flat screen television, Bluray DVD player, and wall support from Robert Rosetta, President of AboutNewJersey.com and a board member of the Clarke House Volunteers. Mr. Rosetta has been engaged for a number of years in promoting tourism throughout New Jersey and is a long-time supporter of Princeton Battlefield State Park and the Thomas Clarke House.

John Mills, Curator at Princeton Battlefield State Park, in thanking Mr. Rosetta for the gift and for his long support of Princeton Battlefield and the Clarke House stated, “You are making a difference in keeping the site preserved and in interpreting its history to the public.”

A letter from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to Mr. Rosetta acknowledging the gift states, “This addition to the exhibits and interpretive programming at the Thomas Clarke House will greatly expand our ability to educate the public in the history of this National Historic Landmark. We will now have the ability to show the 1/2 hour film, The Ten Crucial Days, which was created for this historic site and to show future video productions that will highlight various aspects of 18th century life.”

The Clarke House Volunteers plan to take advantage of the technology by producing videos of their living history programs and cooking demonstrations, all of which people will be able to view at the Clarke House.

Said Mr. Rosetta, “I felt that January 3, 2012, the 235th anniversary of the Battle of Princeton was a very good time to make this gift to the park. This technology offers the public another way to appreciate and learn about the significance of the site.”

The Thomas Clarke House is located at Princeton Battlefield State Park, 500 Mercer Road, Princeton, NJ, is open Wednesdays – Saturdays 10am – 4pm and Sundays 1pm – 4pm.  For more information, visit http://www.VisitPrincetonBattlefield.org,
