Help Honor Belleville’s First Soldiers – July 4th
The Township of Belleville, NJ
As the United States celebrates its 240th birthday and Belleville its 219th birthday on Monday, July 4, 2016, please join us Monday morning at 11 AM at the old Belleville Reformed Church (corner of Rutgers St and Main St) as we honor and remember Belleville’s first soldiers, the patriots of the American Revolution.
The 45-minute ceremony includes a roll call of the troops, the raising of the colors, reading from the Declaration of Independence, patriotic music and concludes with a 21-gun cannon salute.
