As NJ was the epicenter of the Rev. War, Somerset Co. was the epicenter of all the action in NJ. Truly the crossroads of the War.
Some of these Arcadia local history books are better than others, and William Schleicher's are all among the very best. A gifted historian and writer (see his journal articles on Samuel Sutphin for example), he has spent 30 years absorbed in Somerset County history. As long-time head of the local historical society, and Rev. War collector and reenactor, he was uniquely qualified for this task. And it shows. A must have for anyone living near Somerset County, anyone involved in one of the many ancient churches, anyone with genealogical interests in the region, or any Rev War buff. Especially fun to introduce your children to the local history.
If you live in Somerset Co., buy an extra copy for your church or public library.
