A Revolutionary War Ghost, Native Americans, Civil War Soldiers Through Song

oin in for a special presentation of “Story-Songs of History” by author, singer-songwriter and New Jersey resident Gordon Thomas Ward on Sun. June 19, at 3 p.m. at Morristown NHP’s Washington’s Headquarters Museum in Morristown.

This delightful performance of stirring tales, told through song and spoken word captures both attention and imagination. Haunting melodies, a multi-instrumental accompaniment, and illustrative lyrics transport listeners on journeys in the company of Colonial soldier Joseph Plumb Martin, a Revolutionary War ghost, Native Americans, Civil War soldiers, and more! This presentation has been described by adults as “spellbinding,” and, as one high school student remarked, “The people and events seem real, so I can relate to them.”

Admission to the program is free.

To complement the program, on display will be a first edition from Morristown NHP’s curatorial collection of Joseph Plumb Martin’s eyewitness account of the Revolutionary War.

Morristown National Historical Park preserves, protects, and commemorates the landscapes, structures, features, and museum collections of the Continental Army winter encampments, the headquarters of General George Washington, and related Revolutionary War sites at Morristown for the benefit and inspiration of the public.
