Event description

Description

The Journal Square Community Association, in partnership with the Jersey City Office of Cultural Affairs, is excited to present a Public Scholar Project titled: "New Jersey's Vital Role in American Independence."

New Jersey was the Crossroads of the American Revolution; the site of more fighting than any other state, including the wars most important victory: Washington Crossing the Delaware and the ensuing Battle of Trenton. There is much more, however, to understanding New Jersey's vital role in the War for Independence. In particular, it is important to note that New Jersey was divided along many fault lines in 1776. New Jerseys residents were both patriots and tories while many, perhaps a majority, sought to remain neutral and stay out of the fray.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and requires advanced registration. Please RSVP by using this link, or by calling the Office of Cultural Affairs at (201) 547-6921.

This program is made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
