READINGTON MUSEUMS CHOCOLATE MAKING
How did a bitter seed become the chocolate that so many of us love?  As the drink of choice in Colonial America, and popular among all social classes, it was not unusual to start one’s day with a hot, spicy cup of chocolate. It was perceived to cure common ailments, and was even sold in Benjamin Franklin’s Philadelphia print shop.  Susan McLellan Plaisted MS RD CSP LDN, demonstrates the use of the metate by turning the cacao bean into chocolate. Find out what really went into making chocolate from bean to drink, from drink to sweets, and from sweets to the modern candy.

EAST AMWELL AND THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR
With John Allen, local Historian and EAHS Board Member
The Civil War ended in May 1865 with the surrender of the last significant Confederate filed Army. Thus ended the four-year long "national nightmare".
However, its influence did not end with that final surrender. It affected the daily life of both soldiers and civilians during the conflict and its direct effects lingered in the Nation (and in East Amwell Township) as long a s a veterans memory survived, well into the 20th Century.  READ MORE HERE...

A CRADLE OF THE NATIONAL PASTIME
Baseball historian and author John Zinn is the guest speaker at the Hunterdon County Historical Society’s spring meeting on Sunday, March 11 @ 2:00 p.m. The meeting and lecture will be held at the Presbyterian Church, 10 East Main Street in Flemington.
Since 2010, John Zinn has been an independent historian with special interest in the history of baseball. He is the author of three books about the Brooklyn Dodgers including the first full- length biography of Dodger owner Charles Ebbets to be published in the spring of 2018. Mr. Zinn is serving as the guest curator for an exhibit on early New Jersey baseball history at the Morven Museum in Princeton, opening in June of 2018. He is also writing the companion book to the exhibit.
The afternoon lecture will begin with the early days of organized baseball describing New Jersey’s important role during the antebellum period. After looking at baseball during the Civil War, the focus will shift to the post war years in New Jersey. The 19th century baseball game and how it differs from the modern version will be discussed along with a look at the Flemington Neshanock, one of Hunterdon County’s first baseball teams. In his spare time, Mr. Zinn is the score keeper for the Neshanock vintage baseball team!
