Battle Monument, also known as Five Points, is an unincorporated community and neighborhood located within the city of Trenton in Mercer County, New Jersey, United States.[1][2] The name Battle Monument is in reference to the Trenton Battle Monument, which sits just south of the Five Points formed from the intersection of Pennington Avenue, Princeton Avenue, Brunswick Avenue, North Broad Street and North Warren Street.[3]

    "To commemorate the First Battle of Trenton on the strategic site where Continental cannons were stationed, a monument was constructed and dedicated with much fanfare in 1893. The Battle Monument, (#108) designed by John H. Duncan, F.A.I.A., the architect of Grant’s Tomb, is a one hundred fifty foot high Roman Doric column set on a large pedestal with bronze reliefs surmounted by an observation platform capped by a statue of Washington. The Battle Monument remains one of the City’s most imposing landmarks, anchoring the Five Points intersection and providing a focus for the North 25 Park.
