 Civil War 150 Committee
This    unique    catalog    contains    all    the    NJ    Civil    War    artifacts which   were   in   the   Macculloch   Hall   Historical   Museum’s   Exhibit “Gone   for   a   Soldier:”   Jerseymen   in   the   Civil   War,   which   ran from   late   2011   to   mid   2012.   This   catalog   was   intended   as   a companion   guide   for   visitors   to   the   exhibit,   giving   more   detail on all each item as well as a lasting memory to take home. It   brings   together   many   unseen   or   unknown   civil   war   artifacts, nearly   200   items,   into   one   place   for   the   first   time   since   the   late 1880’s.    The    items    contained    within    are    from    New    Jersey historical      societies,      museums      and      private      collections throughout   New   Jersey   and   as   far   away   as   DC,   Maryland   and even   Richmond,   VA.   This   publication   contains,   uniforms,   rifles, swords,   accoutrements,   flags,   drums,   recruiting   posters,   and other   diverse   items   including   many   personal   belongings   carried by   these   New   Jersey   soldiers,   many   who   never   came   back from the war. This   catalog   also   tells   a   story   of   those   New   Jersey   Soldiers, some   fighting   for   the   Confederacy   too,   and   reminds   us   of   the valor   of   the   80,000   Jerseymen   who   took   up   arms   to   save   the Union.
