American Revolution Veterans Remembered

The men named on the plaque risked everything to provide freedom for those of us who stand here today. When the men of Belleville rose up against England, it was no sure thing that the colonies would prevail but that the revolutionaries and their leaders might hang.

The Dutch Reformed Church, in what is now Belleville, New Jersey, was established in 1697. The private cemetery on the west side of the building has in it buried sixty-six Revolutionary War veterans.

A special thanks to organizer Michael Perrone and local government officials for supporting this annual event.
