商品の説明

内容紹介

Between the Watchung Mountains to the north and the Sourland Mountains to the west lies the fertile valley of the Raritan River. Stout Dutch, Huguenot, German, Scottish, and English settlers began to cultivate family farms here as early as the 1680s.
For almost a hundred years, the tramp of soldiers' feet and sounds of cannons had been unknown, but that was about to change. With its location astride two major routes between New York and Philadelphia, it is little wonder that Somerset County became the
"Crossroads of the Revolution." A friendly populace and the protection of the mountains made this a safe haven for General Washington's army. His soldiers
camped for three winters, including the harshest winter of the Revolution, in Somerset and in the adjacent areas of central New Jersey. Washington spent more time here than any other place during the War for Independence. It was in this historically
significant county that the first military academy in the nation was built, the 13-star flag was first flown over American troops after its adoption by Congress, and the "Regulations for the Infantry of the United States" was written by General von Steuben.

著者について

Take a trip back in time to the turn of the century, when Charlie Wikoff's stable coach was being replacedby the automobile, and family farms were being turned into country manors. Join local historians William and Amanda Schleicher on a visual tour of Bedminster's heritage as they celebrate the town's history. This rich compendium of historic Bedminster is sure to be enjoyed by residents and visitors, young and old alike


Winter worked as a Social Worker in South Africa, and later London. She is currently a freelance illustrator of children's books.

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.
