Come Help Us Celebrate Patriot Thomas Paine's 280th Birthday!
The Fort Lee Historical Society and the Fort Lee Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs invite you to our annual celebration of Thomas Paine’s birthday. This year we celebrate a few days ahead of the date – our celebration is scheduled for Friday, January 27th at 7pm at the Fort Lee Museum at 1588 Palisade Avenue adjacent to Monument Park. The evening will include our Thomas Paine reenactor Ken Miller and period music by troubadour Thaddeus MacGregor. Thomas Paine was a member of General Washington’s army here in Fort Lee and he encamped with 3,000 fellow soldiers in the area surrounding our museum in 1776. Here in Fort Lee he began to write his famous American Crisis. Admission is free but seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served. For further info contact us at (201) 693-2763.
