Arabella Barlow Day: Civil War Surgeon’s Demonstration & Soldier’s Encampment

Civil War heroine Arabella Barlow, a great-granddaughter of the Wallace family of Wallace House and Hardenbergh family of Old Dutch Parsonage, was born in Somerville 200 years ago in 1824.

For Arabella Barlow Day, meet a surgeon of the 4th N.J. Volunteer Reg’t and see a demonstration of Civil War medicine. Enter a small Civil War encampment and encounter a New Jersey soldier’s experience of the Civil War.

Historical exhibits and discussion share new 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 concludes 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.
