NJ is the Crossroads of the Revolution
Here in New Jersey, we are surrounded by American History.
From major battles in Morristown, Princeton, and Trenton...to skirmishes everywhere in between.
We are so used to this (or unaware, possibly), that we take little notice.
I was walking on a recent sunny afternoon when I came across the Historical Marker seen at the top of the page.
I read the marker...and learned something.
I didn't know that the troops encamped where the Manville (Somerset County) Public Library stands today...(and throughout the general area, as the marker states).
Do yourself a favor...the next time you see a Historical Marker, take a few moments out of your hectic New Jersey life...and read it.
Here in New Jersey, we live, work, and walk in the footsteps of history.
New Jersey was...and is...an important part of this story we call "America."
After all, New Jersey is the "Crossroads of the Revolution."
And, some of our New Jersey towns have "nicknames," too.

Now, let's go back in time to "America's Playground," the NJ shore city that gave the world Salt Water Taffy...
Travel back in time to a colorized Atlantic City circa 1919
Isn't New Jersey really a great place to live, after all?
