History at Home: Colonial Taverns of New Jersey

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Citing research from his book, Michael C. Gabriele will discuss how taverns housed the daily experiences of people during the colonial era, and how these stories provide a window into the state’s history from that period. A haven for Patriots and Loyalists alike, taverns were the “seedbeds” for the revolution, strongholds for political activities, beacons for travelers, and venues for entertainment, merriment, and libations. Once the war began, taverns became recruitment stations for colonial militias and meeting places for local committees of safety. This event will take place on Zoom, register here.
