Our mission is to enhance the understanding and appreciation of America's past
by presenting and interpreting the history, culture and lives of ordinary people
through educational programs, through preservation and stewardship of our collection,
and through exhibition and demonstration of the trades and crafts practiced
in New Jersey from its earliest settlement.

The American Revolution in New Jersey:
Where the Battlefront Meets the Homefront
revflag.gifNew Jersey spent much of the American Revolution as a theater of war.  This exhibitcanteen.gif explores the rarely told story of New Jersey’s farmers, women and tradesmen and their actions during the war.  Topics discussed include the local civil wars that erupted between  revolutionaries and loyalists, the multiple roles that women took on as their men went off to war, and how civilian life was affected by the regular presence of troops.
