  (R) BLACK SLAVES AND SOLDIERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
Did you know that 22 slaves and 12 free men of color aided General George Washington as he crossed the Delaware from Pennsylvania into Hunterdon County, New Jersey that fateful Christmas of 1776?  How did General Washington, a Virginia plantation owner, feel about having black soldiers in his army?  An important topic during Black History Month, join Fred Minus, a volunteer and re-enactor at the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton for a provocative, informative and generally unknown side of the history of the American Revolution.

Beer, Bluegrass & Bootleggers” – A fun and entertaining evening!!
Hosted by the Sourland Conservatory with a presentation by Jim Davidson, Historian and President of the EAHS 
The first fun event kicking off the New Year will be our participation in “Beer, Bluegrass and Bootleggers”. The event is hosted by the Sourland Conservancy at Hillbilly Hall on Friday, February 26th.  Jim Davidson will be starting the night off with a talk, “The Dark Side of the Sourlands”, where he will reveal stories of the many murders, missing people, and bootlegging that took place on the mountain up until modern times.  He will talk about the ax murders of Richard Wyckoff and his housekeeper, the infamous Put’s Tavern, Charles Sutphin and his warning to Lindbergh not to build on the mountain because it was an evil place, finishing up with some of the strange, little known events associated with the kidnapping itself.  Doors open at 6:30 for the talk at 7pm followed by a live bluegrass band in the main dining room. Get there early, seating is limited.
Hillbilly Hall, Route 607, East Amwell NJ
