New Jersey’s Faces of the Revolution

Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors is a collection of short biographies revealing how people from all walks of life and regions of New Jersey dealt with struggles over personal responsibility, community, and public service during the years of the American Revolution. We face similar struggles today and these stories can help us think through our own responses to them. The stories also help us understand the complex nature of the Revolution in New Jersey that was both a war for independence and a civil war that lasted over eight years and permeated life on a daily basis.

All of our Revolutionary Neighbor Illustrations were created by Joe Barsin of Citizen Pride for Crossroads of the American Revolution.

And much thanks to all our contributors, especially Larry Kidder, for developing and editing many of these People profiles.
