Some things have changed since the days when Washington was fighting the British in the colony of New Jersey.
Some things have stayed the same.
Today, our residents are leaving New Jersey in greater numbers than in years passed.
During Washington’s crossing of the Delaware, he and his troops were coming in to New Jersey to push back the Brits, rather than leaving.
Today, many towns in New Jersey have an overcrowding problem in their towns due to the scarcity of affordable housing. Looks like Washington and his troops also had an over-crowding problem in their boats, when crossing the Delaware.
Once thing is for certain: Back in Washington’s day, we were fighting the British because of taxes imposed by the King on the colonies. That has not changed much.
People still don’t like paying taxes, some 230 years later.
