The Forgotten Victory: The Battle of Springfield of 1780 – Oct. 17th
Come to the Durand-Hedden House on Sunday, October 17 to learn about the critical Revolutionary War battle of 1780 that was fought just down the road, in Vauxhall, the Short Hills, Springfield and Connecticut Farms (Union).
Historian John Kieser will bring to life this often-overlooked conflict, in which the New Jersey militia prevented the British from getting to Washington’s troops in Morristown. The presentation is at 2:00 pm, and the House and Country Store will be open from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The Durand-Hedden House, Maplewood’s historic house museum, is at 523 Ridgewood Rd. www.durandhedden.org. Proof of vaccination and masks required.
