Speaker: Carrie Fellows, Executive Director

Crossroads of the American Revolution

Commemorating America's 250th in New Jersey:

Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area

In 2026, the 250th anniversary of America’s Revolution affords New Jersey an economic and branding opportunity to grow its tourism industry by showcasing the state’s distinctive stories and places associated with the Revolutionary War era. Focusing on heritage tourism – defined as traveling to experience the places, artifacts and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past – New Jersey can increase its competitiveness and enhance its market share of this important industry segment. Crossroads of the American Revolution, in partnership with the New Jersey Historical Commission as RevolutionNJ, is legislatively designated to coordinate and plan New Jersey's observance. Executive Director, Carrie Fellows will describe the role her organization plays in the partnership, the opportunities for heritage tourism and economic development that 250th anniversary programs and events bring to New Jersey, and how your community may participate.

New Jersey was the site of more Revolutionary War military action - battles, skirmishes, raids, and acts of war - than any other of the original colonies. Washington spent fully one-quarter of the war in New Jersey, where residents experienced eight long years of civil war in addition to wider military actions. It is time for New Jersey to take its rightful place as the Crossroads of the American Revolution!
