Special Event: Gordon Thomas Ward

Welcome to the Past

with nationally recognized presenter

Gordon Thomas Ward

Friday, June 8, from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Morristown National Historical Park Museum Auditorium

Don’t miss this entertaining and informative evening of stories, songs, poetry, and history.

For Mr. Ward, the landscapes around us can be truly magical places where he considers the past to be very much alive and entwined with the present.  In keeping with the Revolutionary theme of Morristown National Historical Park, Mr. Ward’s presentation Welcome to the Past will address the 1779-1780 encampment of the New Jersey Brigade, reveal the layers of history at the site, recount some personal tales from growing up in the area, and entertain you with original songs and a couple of colonial ghost stories that have their roots in the same location.

Following the show, Mr. Ward’s books about retracing the Lewis and Clark Trail, our significant links in local history, and the exploration of haunted, historic sites of central New Jersey will be available for signing and purchase.
