Heritage Sundays at the James and Ann Whitall House

As you may know from other posts, if you are a regular visitor, I've been a volunteer on Heritage Sundays at the Whitall House since I retired.  Actually, I took a full year off before I volunteered, so I've been there 7 years.  The new schedule for this year has just been posted, so here is your early bird peek:

Sunday May 18th-Hear a Hessian Soldiers' Story. Find out if you lived to tell the tale of Red Bank!

Sunday June 8--Exhibit opening, "Oh Freedom: African American Soldiers in the Revolutionary War." Featuring a living history demonstration by historian/re-enactor, Joe Becton.

Sunday June 22--Rutgers Master Garden Program Flower Show

Sunday July 20th-The Whitalls and War: Find out how the war impacted this quiet Quaker homestead!

Sunday September 21-Military Encampment: Come out and meet the members of the West Jersey Artillery Company and the First Delaware Regiment who will offer artillery demonstrations, a military encampment and living history demonstrations.
