An intro to the geography of the Jerseys and the role it played during the American Revolution.

Historian, educator, past President of the Bergen County Historical Society and current chairman of the Historic New Bridge Landing Park Commission, James Smith, will be giving an illustrated talk highlighting the unique regions of New Jersey and how the land forms were just as critical to winning the war for independence as those who fought here.

Why does it seem all roads lead to New Bridge? Why did Washington spend multiple winters at Morristown? And was everything all right down the shore? These and many more questions will be discussed as we just scratch the surface of the complex land forms of the Jerseys.

Meet in the Steuben House, 1209 Main St, River Edge, NJ. Free lecture. Please join us for refreshments afterward.
