The Fourth of July commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which severed ties between the American colonies and Great Britain. While the actual date of the Second Continental Congress approving independence was on July 2nd, America celebrates its anniversary on July 4th as that is when the final version of the Declaration of Independence was approved, signed, and sent to the printer for publication.

Hillsborough received its official charter on May 29th, 1771, to become Hillsborough Township. (2) The township became part of American history during the Revolutionary War when General Washington was moving his army to Morristown after the Battle of Princeton, where the Continental Army defeated British forces on January 3rd, 1777. (3) During the move, Washington had his men encamped on Sourland Mountain while British forces waited in the valley below for an opportunity to attack. Washington had his men drill in various formations while holding corn stalks in place of guns. The sunlight caught the corn stalks, and the British thought that Washington had been supplied with armed reinforcements. Believing that they were now outnumbered, the British retreated to New Brunswick, allowing the Continental Army to continue their march to Morristown. The town's populace, including those living at Claremont Towers, are extremely proud of their local connection to an important moment during the Revolutionary War.
