New Jersey, Pre & Post Revolution
August 10, 2019 at 2:00 PM | Little Egg Harbor Twp, NJ | Giffordtown Schoolhouse Museum
Have you ever thought about how New Jersey was created? Perhaps you’ve wondered about how East and West Jersey came to be? Or you’ve considered how life changed for landowners as the American Revolution intensified? The way the state developed before, during, and after the revolution, including some of its distinctive features that still remain today, is fascinating. In this session, significant topics like New Jersey’s role in politics, transportation, trade, and agricultural on the eve of revolution will be explored.
