CRANFORD—The Cranford Public Library invites the public to a lecture by Dr. William Gillette, Professor of History at Rutgers University, on “The Role of New Jersey in the Civil War,” on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.

Gillette will offer a reconsideration of the state’s wartime role.  The traditional view that New Jersey was a copperhead stronghold will be challenged. The home front and the battlefront will be touched on, but emphasis will be given to the political front.
