UNION, NJ - On March 24, the Union Township Historical Society will host a program called "Revolutionary New Jersey: Forgotten Towns and Crossroads of the American Revolution."
The program is based off the book of the same name, written by Robert A. Mayers. Mayers, who will be the guest speaker at the event enjoys discovering facts about the American Revolution that have not been uncovered in earlier books. As the descendant of Corporal John Allison, the Revolutionary War also holds a personal place in Mayers' world.
Mayers' visits to Rev War sites, combined with his research into original documents and oral accounts, help him bring history alive. His audiences comment that they regret having tuned out history in school. Mayers' presentations are for everyone--not just history buffs.
Mayers is an active member of ten historical societies and a frequent contributor to their publications. His service as a combat officer in both the Navy and the Marine Corps provides him with a deeper perspective into battles depicted in his work. Mayers is a graduate of Rutgers University and served as an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University
Admission to his presentation is free. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please call 908-591-4377.
