    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: February 22, 2012
    Time: 7:00 pm

    On Wednesday February 22nd Macculloch Hall Historical
    Museum is pleased to welcome speaker Joe Bilby in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibit “Gone for a Soldier:” Jerseymen in the Civil War. Presented in partnership with the New Jersey Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee this new exhibit brings together for the first time about two hundred objects from the Civil War from
    nearly thirty museums, historical societies, and private collections. Each month through June the Museum is presenting a lecture relating to the exhibit. All lectures start at 7pm with tickets available from 6:30pm and are held at the Cincinnati Masonic Lodge No. 3, 39 Maple Avenue (one block from the museum).

    This February, during Black History Month, Mr. Bilby will present “Freedom to All,” NJ Black Troops in the Civil War. Based on the book by the same name, this lecture details the story of the state’s black soldiers in the Civil War.  The talk also addresses African-American military service in New Jersey before and after the conflict, from Revolutionary War militiamen to the state’s segregated First Separate Militia Battalion of the 1930s and the post-World War II New Jersey National Guard, which in 1948 led the nation in integrating its military force.  Most Civil War African-American New Jersey soldiers served in the regiments of the United States Colored Troops organized
    at Camp William Penn outside Philadelphia.  Perhaps the most famous of these regiments was the 22nd United States Colored Infantry. This valiant unit broke the
    Confederate line at Petersburg in June, 1864, fought through the siege of Petersburg, was one of the first Union units to enter Richmond, marched in President Lincoln’s funeral parade in Washington, participated in the hunt for
    John Wilkes Booth and served on occupation and border guard duty in Texas before returning home for discharge in the fall of 1865. Bilby relates the histories of the Camp William Penn regiments with large numbers of Jerseymen in their ranks, as well as the stories of individual members of those units.

    Mr. Bilby is the author or editor of thirteen other books on New Jersey and Civil War history.  He received his
    BA and MA degrees in history from Seton Hall University
    and served as a lieutenant in the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam in 1966-1967.  Retired from a position as
    Supervising Investigator at the New Jersey Department of Labor, Bilby currently works part time as assistant curator of the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey in Sea Girt. He is a member and publications editor of the New Jersey Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee. Mr. Bilby will be available to sell and sign books after the lecture.

    Tickets for the lectures are Adults $8, Seniors $6, Students (over 12 years) $6. Members of the Museum will receive a $2 discount for these special programs. Memberships can be purchased at the door.  Cash or check only please. Ticket holders to the museum exhibit will receive a $2 discount to the lectures with proof of admission; lecture ticket holders may also receive a $2 discount on a museum exhibit visit. See ticket desk for details.  On the evenings of the Civil War Lecture Series the Museum will have extended exhibit hours from 1pm - 6:30pm.  “Gone for a Soldier” is on display Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons through July 1st 2012.

    The New Jersey Sesquicentennial Committee, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, a volunteer organization working for increased
    awareness and recognition of New Jersey’s important role in the Civil war, has been recognized by the New Jersey Governor and both houses of the New Jersey legislature. Macculloch Hall Historical Museum preserves the history of the Macculloch-Miller families, the Morris area community, and the legacy of its founder W. Parsons Todd through its
    historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs.

    Foster and Volunteer Recruitment Drive

    Home for Good Dog Rescue is currently looking for fosters and volunteers. Representatives will be available at PetSmart 187 Millburn Ave, Millburn, NJ from 11 AM to 4 PM to answer your questions regarding our organization. If you or someone you know may be interested or would like more information, please contact us at 908-598-82122 or visit our website Homeforgooddogs.org.

    Home for Good is a volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue. Our mission is to rescue, nurture and place adoptable dogs into loving homes for good. Home for Good rescues dogs from high-kill shelters (dogs at high risk of being euthanized due to shelter overcrowding) and matches them with loving families in NJ and the surrounding area.

    Since our founding in August 2010, Home for Good has successfully placed over 750 dogs into permanent “forever” homes. We heavily rely on our foster program which provides temporary housing and a loving family environment until the dogs are adopted into permanent homes. We provide veterinary care and all food and supplies while the pet is in foster care. We always have a waiting list of pets in need. We are constantly looking for new fosters, so that we can save even more dogs. Our foster families provide a vital link in our mission to save dogs from euthanasia and place them in loving homes.

    Home for Good is run by dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help homeless dogs. Our volunteers are instrumental in preparing the dogs for adoption, providing temporary housing the dogs (through our foster program), and assisting with the adoption events, fundraising and community outreach activities. We also have a junior volunteer (over 16 years of age) program.

    Dogs available for adoption are posted on Petfinder.com and through a link on our website Homeforgooddogs.org. Adoption events are held at various pet supply stores in the Essex, Morris and Union County area on weekends.

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum presents New Jersey Civil War Patriotic Covers, Letters and photographs

     

    Beginning Wednesday February 1st visitors can view a selection of American Civil War patriotic covers on display in the center hall of Macculloch Hall. These envelopes bear patriotic illustrations and messages that provide an unusual insight into a turbulent and fascinating period of American history. The designs reflect patriotism and the sentimentalities and realities of a soldier’s life in war with documentation of great battles, tributes to heroes, or biting satires on opposing views. These images still communicate more than a century later, a sense of the great depth of feeling engendered by our nation’s most bloody conflict.

     

    After the attack by Confederate forces on Fort Sumter, South Carolina, on April 12, 1861, hundreds of such envelopes were quickly issued by many printers bearing flag, eagle, liberty and shield designs; all the forerunners of more sophisticated designs that were produced later during the war. New Jersey residents also used these patriotic covers in their correspondence as a popular means of displaying patriotic ideals. But New Jersey, primarily an agrarian state with a low-density population, had one of the smallest numbers of such covers to survive the era.

     

    Also on display is a small exhibit from the Macculloch Hall Historical Museum archives, featuring Lindley H. Miller's campaign as one of the first officers chosen to lead troops of former slaves. A grandson of Louisa and George Macculloch, Lindley joined the war effort after the tragic deaths of his young wife and their baby. But his heart was always in the cause, as he wrote to his mother and brother. The exhibit traces his path to leadership of the First Regiment Arkansas Volunteers of African Descent, his enthusiastic embrace of his duties and his admiration of his troops. He died of disease only six months later, shortly after being promoted to Major. The exhibit includes letters both rousing and touching, photographs and an early printing of the famous marching song he composed for his men, which was later widely promoted by Sojourner Truth.

     

    This display of Civil War history will be on view from February 1st and complements the current large gallery exhibit “Gone for a Soldier:” Jerseymen in the Civil War. Presented in partnership with the New Jersey Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee (NJCWSC) the exhibit brings together for the first time about two hundred objects from the Civil War from nearly thirty museums, historical societies, and private collections. Visitors can see both exhibits during touring hours Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sunday 1pm - 4pm.

     

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum preserves the history of the Macculloch-Miller families, the Morris area community, and the legacy of its founder W. Parsons Todd through its historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs. It is located in the heart of Morristown’s National Historic District.
