Bob Mayers will speak at the Annual Meeting of the Washington Campground Association. The program and buffet dinner is to celebrate Washington’s Birthday. The event will be at 6PM at the Somerville Elks Lodge at 375 Union Avenue in Bridgewater, NJ. Bob’s topic will be “Middlebrook-The Revolutionary War Campground that saved America.

Mayers was lost and stumbling through the thick woods atop the first Watchung ridge above Route 22, in Bridgewater, at the site of Washington’s 1777 Revolutionary War Middlebrook Campground. He was searching for a rocky lookout used by General George Washington. This location was lost in history, but Mayers found a record of it in a 1785 British account.
