    Josephine and Charles Russell Lowell, 1863

    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: Weekly on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays
    Time: 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum presents a different side of the Civil War in The Other Side of War: The Civil War on the Home Front.  The exhibit will be featured in the museum’s upstairs gallery from April 1st through November 11th.  Life on the home front was not easy for loved ones whom the soldiers left behind Women played an important role in the Union war effort; starting the U.S. Sanitary Commission, serving as nurses, gathering goods and raising money for the soldiers all contributed to the Union victory.

     

    The stories of the men and women who battled through the war on both fronts—the battlefield and at home—are heroic and moving.  Local Morris County men fighting in the war wrote home asking for various supplies unavailable through traditional army supply channels.  One of these men, Lindley Hoffman Miller who lived at Macculloch Hall, wrote letters and poems home describing his experiences as a white officer of a regiment of black troops. Robert Gould Shaw, who led one of the first black regiments (upon whom the movie Glory was based), his sister Josephine Shaw Lowell and her husband Charles Russell Lowell shared intriguing stories of heroism on the battlefield and taking place at home with one another in their letters and letterbooks.

     

    Winslow Homer and Thomas Nast created drawings for Harper’s Weekly during the early 1860s; their illustrations of the hardships felt by the soldiers and those they left behind help document the home front during the war. A common theme in both letters and images of the home front is the importance of letters between families and friends, which told whether loved ones were alive or dead. One soldier signed every letter home, “please write soon.”

     

    James Russell Lowell (Charles’ uncle), Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson wrote poetry during and after the war that inspired loyalty, captured some of its pathos, and celebrated acts of heroism.  In addition to his work as a poet, Whitman served as a nurse during the war.  Although not medically trained as they are today, nurses performed an important and necessary service during the war. Many women became nurses and helped to win better conditions and secure supplies for the soldiers. Without their efforts the war may have turned out differently.

     

    The President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, led the North through the war and was assassinated just before the conflict ended.  The death of the President was felt throughout the Union.  Mourning and memorial badges were worn and memorial images were created to celebrate the President.  The exhibit features Lincoln memorabilia from the Museum’s collection including a plate from his White House china, and a document signed by Lincoln as President and the Secretary of War.

     

    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. The Museum is open to tour the house and view exhibits on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. General Admission: Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4.

    Monica Merel

    Location: Village Hall
    101 S Orange Ave, South Orange, NJ
    When: April 24, 2012
    Time: 7:00 pm–9:00 pm

    A South Orange Historical & Preservation Society Program on the changing face of residential wiring. From Edison’s first light bulb in 1880 to the present.

    SPEAKER: Monica Merel, CEES LLC (Clean Energy Electric & Solar LLC)

    Many homes in South Orange date back to a time when gaslights were the main source of lighting. When these homes were retrofitted to access electricity for lighting, no electrical code requirements existed to safeguard people and property from electrical fire. Newly invented electrical lighting systems were simply installed inside of existing gaslight supply pipes and some of these electrical systems are still in use today. Over time each generation superimposed the latest technology onto the pre-existing systems to extend live energy into almost every corner of the home. Sometimes in this process, incompatible types of electricity-carrying materials were connected together. We don’t like to think about it but old wiring can be dangerous.

    Learn how residential wiring should be upgraded and maintained just as heating, ventilation and cooling systems, roofs and paint jobs are maintained.
