Gordon Thomas Ward presents Gateways to History
Celebrated author and presenter Gordon Thomas Ward will present different perspectives on the era of the American Revolution as it relates to the Morristown area. First, his program reviews the Ford Family of Morris County, New Jersey, along with their mansion in Morristown. Both the Ford Family and their home participated in and witnessed some of the most trying time s of the first century of the American pageant. The multi-layered family history is tangibly represented in the multi-floored and memory-laden mansion, which stands to this day as a testament to the passage of time and the enduring power of place. Following this, Mr. Ward will discuss the 1779-1780 encampment of the New Jersey Brigade in Jockey Hollow and their encampment site, which was discovered in the 1960s. He will entertain everyone with the song and several seldom-told ghost stories connected with local historic sites from the time of the American Revolution. Projected photos will complement the entire presentation.
