Arabella Barlow, born and buried in Somerville, was a great-granddaughter of the Wallace and Hardenbergh families of Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage State Historic Sites, offering one of the “mystic chords of memory” crossing New Jersey history from the American Revolution to the Civil War.

On the grounds of Wallace House State Historic Site, enter a small Civil War encampment and encounter a New Jersey soldier’s experience of the Civil War.

In our Sign of the Red Lion Interpretive Center, meet a surgeon of the 4th N.J. Volunteer Reg’t and see a demonstration of Civil War medicine.

Historical exhibits and discussion share new and continuing research uncovering Somerville’s Civil War heroine Arabella Barlow in New Jersey women’s history.

Admission is free. Come and go throughout the afternoon.

This program is part of a series made possible the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association with the sponsorship of New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this series do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
