The Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market will host a talk on “The Civil War’s Long Shadow in Southern Hunterdon County” with Hunterdon County Historical Society Trustee John Allen on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 10:30 a.m. in the Dvoor Farm wagon house.
Allen explores how the Civil War affected several Hunterdon County communities including East Amwell, West Amwell, and Raritan and Delaware townships. Allen’s research uncovers some fascinating and tragic snapshots of how the Civil War affected the veterans and their families.
The program is free and is sponsored by a grant from The Tyler Foundation.
