The Spirit of the Jerseys

By Linda Tancs

New Jersey’s State History Fair,  the only statewide event where visitors can experience five centuries of the state’s history in one place, is taking place on 11 May at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville from 11 am to 5 pm.  Activities include military encampments and displays covering the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and both world wars.   You’ll enjoy period music and crafts, living history demonstrations and exhibits by historical societies and museums.  If you (or your kids) think history is boring, then check out the historic character portrayals that will bring the past to life.  The cast includes Molly Pitcher (who followed her husband through Revolutionary War battles), George Washington and British General William Howe.
