Join us for this very special concert with performances from the Libby Prison Minstrels, Joe Becton, The Susquehanna Travellers, Jed Marum, Helen Beedle, The Irish Volunteers Civil War Band and Steve Ball and Lisa Williams. Hear the stories behind the songs as these talented musician/historians perform the music soldiers heard around the campfires and their families heard at home. Dr. David Martin, historian and author of over 20 books on the Civil War will offer the keynote address on the importance of music in the Civil War. Weather permitting, there will also be an encampment of Civil War re-enactors outside of the library to answer questions about the lives of soldiers during the War. This event is co-sponsored by the New Jersey Civil War Heritage Association and made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council on the Humanities. Contact: 732-431-7220 x7222
