January 2020: What Made New Jersey Jersey
The historian David McCullough has said, “History is who we are and why we are the way we are.” Perhaps that’s why we find history so intriguing. It explains not just the past, but the present, with a hint of the future.
Yes, history can be instructive, but it can be fun and fascinating, too. This month’s deep dive into New Jersey history is all of the above.
