Place I Live 2014

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 5 February 2014 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

What defines the place I live is the Delaware River. I live at the very spot where George Washington crossed this river, Christmas night, 1776 and turned the "tide" of the Revolutionary War. These images capture the marker in the park, and the re-enactment which takes place every Christmas Day. Where I live captures the spirit of the American people, where today our community still embraces our history and celebrates our heritage.
