At Connecticut Farms Presbyterian Church, on Sunday, March 24, 2019, at 2 p.m. the Union Township Historical Society will host Robert A. Mayers. He will present “Revolutionary New Jersey: Forgotten Towns and Crossroads of the American Revolution,” based on his new book of the same name, customized for Union and Union County.
Mayers thrives on discovering facts about the American Revolution not found in works of earlier writers. The descendant of Patriot soldier, Corporal John Allison, the American Revolution is personal to him.
Visits to Revolutionary War sites, combined with research into original documents and oral accounts, bring history alive. Mayers’ audiences comment they regret having tuned out history in school. His presentations are for everyone – not just hard core history buffs.
Mayers is an active member of ten historical societies and a frequent contributor to their publications. His service as a combat officer in both the Navy and the Marine Corps provides him with a deeper perspective into battles depicted in his work. Mayers is a graduate of Rutgers University and served as an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University
Admission to his presentation is free. Refreshments will be served.
