Experiencing the American Revolution in NJ- April 21

New Jersey is often called the Crossroads of the American Revolution because so many of its events took place here. New Jersey was under constant threat of attack from the British army that occupied New York City throughout the war and it was also the scene of a civil war among its citizens. Join Larry Kidder on April 21 for a fascinating talk that focuses on the biographies of a number of New Jersey men, women, and children from various ethnic groups and walks of life in different parts of the state that show how the Revolution impacted individual lives in a wide variety of ways. Mr. Kidder is the coordinator of the Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors project of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area and editor of the book, Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors, recently published by Crossroads. He is the author of A People Harassed and Exhausted, about the New Jersey militia in the Revolution, and is currently working on a book about Trenton and its citizens in the Revolution.
