On July 25, 2017, students in the Bayonne Board of Education's Social Studies Civil War Enrichment Program visited Gilder Lehrman's archives at the New York Historical Society. The Gilder Lehrman Institute was founded to promote the study and appreciation of American history; their archive contains over 65,000 documents and objects. As part of exploration of the archives, students read letters from Civil War soldiers and saw copies of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment. This trip was generously funded by the Bayonne Education Foundation.
