The Bordentown City Veterans Memorial Committee has joined the fight to save the memorial and the bridge it sits upon. The bridge is of significant historic value to this town, NJ train history and American history. The memorial is a significant cultural landmark signifying the sacrifice of Bordentown City residents have given in the name of freedom, from the Revolutionary War to present day. This group’s main function is to keep the community updated and make sure that we get as many people involved as possible. There will be letter writing campaigns, petitions and resource gathering.

The Bordentown City Veterans Memorial is a monument constructed, started in 1997, to memorialize those Veterans from Bordentown City who have fought from the Revolutionary War to present day. The Bordentown City Veterans Memorial was dedicated on May 28, 2011. The Bordentown City Veterans Memorial took many years of planning, and many man hours to visualize, create, and dedicate. There were a great many people who had a part in making this glorious monument become a reality, and a huge thanks goes out to John Wehrman (Commissioner ret.), Bruce Throckmorton, John W. "Bill" Collom (Mayor, ret.), and James E. Lynch, Jr. (alumni of Bordentown Military Institute and member of the governing body since 1989) and countless others! The generosity of local businesses and Union Locals that contributed time, money, materials and skilled craftmanship was overwhelming and deeply appreciated. Congratulations to all for making this project a success!
