Shippen Manor Museum Presents

APRIL, 1865
The American Civil War
-150 Years-
Saturday, April 18, 2015
12 Noon-5:00 PM

It is nine days since the surrender of the Confederate Army of
Northern Virginia, yet thousands of Rebel troops from the Carolinas to
Texas have yet to lay down their arms. Warren County boys remain on
all fronts during an uncertain peace; over 2200 have served. Casualty
reports from the war's last battles and from many hospitals continue
to be received and virtually no family has been unaffected...It is
three days since the death of President Lincoln and his assassin has
not yet been caught. Black crepe and cloth adorn the windows and
doorways of many a Warren County home.

Join us for a series of ongoing living history demonstrations and
discussions about military and civilian life during the war presented
by members of the recreated 27th New Jersey Volunteers led by local
Civil War historian John Covert. Drill and musket-firing
demonstrations will be included in the program. Museum Curator Andrew
Drysdale will offer discussions of Shippen Manor residents who
participated in the conflict and a look at Warren County's eight known
Confederates. A special feature will be former National Park Service
historian, college professor and reenactor Richard Pawling, who will
be on hand to discuss the war's industrial history at nearby Oxford
Furnace. Mr. Pawling's interpretation will also be ongoing throughout
the event. Tours of the Manor will also be available. There is no
admission fee.

Shippen Manor Museum is located 1/8th mile west of the Route 31/Wall
Street intersection at 8 Belvidere Avenue in Oxford, N.J.

For further information, please call (908)-453-4381

The Museum and the program are sponsored by The Warren County Cultural
& Heritage Commission and the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
