EDITORS PICK - West Milford (NJ) (Images of America)

West Milford (NJ) (Images of America)- Samantha Vaughan - - Used Book in Good Condition West Milford has always been known for its natural beauty. Its approximately eighty square miles of mountains and lakes have delighted visitors for more than a century. In the mid-1800s, renowned Hudson River School painter Jasper F. Cropsey, who married local resident Maria Cooley, captured many West Milford landscapes in their autumnal splendor. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, many resorts opened in the township and railroads brought wealthy vacationers from New York City to enjoy the countryside. West Milford also has a rich industrial history; ironworks produced cannonballs, stoves, and other items for the Continental militia during the Revolutionary War, including links for iron chains strung across the Hudson River to block access by the British fleet. ››In West Milford, previously unpublished images of these places and events bring the past to light, providing insight into the townshipŪs rich and diverse history. Featured items include images of the 40-room stone mansion Cross Castle, the flight of the airmail rocket Gloria, Idylease Inn during its construction, and the historic town center. Postcards created of local landmarks during West MilfordŪs tourism heyday are included, as well as rare correspondence and letter cover images from the West Milford MuseumŪs Jasper F. Cropsey collection. ››

New Jersey: A History of the Garden State - - - Used Book in Good Condition

New Jersey: A History of the Garden State presents a fresh, comprehensive overview of New Jersey’s history from the prehistoric era to the present. The findings of archaeologists, political, social, and economic historians provide a new look at how the Garden State has evolved.

The state has a rich Native American heritage and complex colonial history. It played a pivotal role in the American Revolution, early industrialization, and technological developments in transportation, including turnpikes, canals, and railroads. The nineteenth century saw major debates over slavery. While no Civil War battles were fought in New Jersey, most residents supported it while questioning the policies of the federal government.

Next, the contributors turn to industry, urbanization, and the growth of shore communities. A destination for immigrants, New Jersey continued to be one of the most diverse states in the nation. Many of these changes created a host of social problems that reformers tried to minimize during the Progressive Era. Settlement houses were established, educational institutions grew, and utopian communities were founded. Most notably, women gained the right to vote in 1920. In the decades leading up to World War II, New Jersey benefited from back-to-work projects, but the rise of the local Ku Klux Klan and the German American Bund were sad episodes during this period.

The story then moves to the rise of suburbs, the concomitant decline of the state’s cities, growing population density, and changing patterns of wealth. Deep-seated racial inequities led to urban unrest as well as political change, including such landmark legislation as the Mount Laurel decision. Today, immigration continues to shape the state, as does the tension between the needs of the suburbs, cities, and modest amounts of remaining farmland.

Well-known personalities, such as Jonathan Edwards, George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Dorothea Dix, Thomas Edison, Frank Hague, and Albert Einstein appear in the narrative. Contributors also mine new and existing sources to incorporate fully scholarship on women, minorities, and immigrants. All chapters are set in the context of the history of the United States as a whole, illustrating how New Jersey is often a bellwether for the nation..

Goodwin gardens on rich clay loam at her historic piedmont North Carolina home--which comprises more than sixty acres of woodland, meadow, and established plantings--and she refuses to irrigate, because she believes in growing only those plants that are naturally adapted to the conditions of her land.

    Fallen Generals: The History of the New Jersey Generals, the USFL's Glamour Team (1983-1986) -Curtis Walker - In 1983, America began a brief flirtation with spring football as the United States Football League made its debut. With the signing of Heisman winner Herschel Walker, the New Jersey Generals were instantly thrust into national prominence. One year later, the team's profile would continue to grow after real estate magnate Donald Trump purchased the Generals, and over the next two years, he would spare no expense to bring in more star-quality talent. Easily his biggest coup was the signing of Boston College's Doug Flutie, college football's most prolific passer, giving the Generals their second Heisman winner in three years. Relive this unique era of professional football from its inception to its unnecessary downfall with this detailed week-by-week history of the USFL's marquee franchise. Included are Generals and league news, statistics, lineups and play-by-play.

    The History of Newark, New Jersey -Joseph Atkinson - The purpose of the author, upon starting out, was to gather in a convenient and permanent form a full and reliable epitome of the history of Newark, from its settlement in May, 1666, to the year 1878; to show what it was as a tender infant, struggling to survive " the thousand natural shocks " that infancy is heir to; what it was as an active, supple-limbed youth in the time of the learned and saintly Burr, the parent-president of Princeton College, Newark's fame-crowned nursling of 1747‚ÄĒ '55; what it was when its soil was hallowed by the footsteps of Washington and his illustrious compatriots, and enriched with the blood of many " native here and to the manner born," in the years clustering around 1776; what it was half a century ago, when its population numbered about a thirteenth of what it now is; what its record has been in " times that tried men's souls," and in the "piping times of peace"; what it has done during two hundred and twelve years for the cause of civil and religious liberty ‚ÄĒ the bed-rock foundation of American institutions; and, finally, to set forth most fully what Newark is now, in the year of grace, 1878. It is for the reader to judge how great or how little has been the success of the author in the direction described.

    The Early Germans Of New Jersey: Their History, Churches, And Genealogies -Theodore F Chambers - THE EARLY GERMANS OF NEW JERSEY: THEIR HISTORY, CHURCHES AND GENEALOGIES
    By Theodore Frelinghuysen Chambers


    Preface

    This work is the result of an attempt to discover the exact time of the first settlement of New Jersey by people of the German race. It is believed that this fact has been ascertained with sufficient certainty. Between 1710 and 1713 nearly all palatines, who have left any trace of their presence, began to arrive in the State and to fulfill their important part in the upbuilding of this commonwealth.

    In the course of this investigation extending, as it needs must do, in so many directions and having to do with so many records, a large amount of valuable material would naturally accumulate. This has appeared to the author to be worth preserving, even though the labor and expense and risk of so large a book would be required for that purpose.

    In tracing the families of the early settlers resort has been had to the records at Newton, Belvidere, Flemington, Somerville and Morristown. Every one of the 62 books of wills at Trenton was examined separately. The church records of Stillwater, German Valley, New Germantown, Lebanon and Mount Pleasant, were carefully compiled. To gather additional data the inscriptions in 31 cemeteries from Newton to Flemington, including those of Lamington, Bedminster and Somerville, were copied. Every county, church and family history procurable was consulted, and on this account the writer feels warranted in saying that the genealogies are as complete and accurate as they can be made. . .

    Windham Press is committed to bringing the lost cultural heritage of ages past into the 21st century through high-quality reproductions of original, classic printed works at affordable prices.

    This book has been carefully crafted to utilize the original images of antique books rather than error-prone OCR text. This also preserves the work of the original typesetters of these classics, unknown craftsmen who laid out the text, often by hand, of each and every page you will read. Their subtle art involving judgment and interaction with the text is in many ways superior and more human than the mechanical methods utilized today, and gave each book a unique, hand-crafted feel in its text that connected the reader organically to the art of bindery and book-making.

    We think these benefits are worth the occasional imperfection resulting from the age of these books at the time of scanning, and their vintage feel provides a connection to the past that goes beyond the mere words of the text.

    Fallen Generals: The History of the New Jersey Generals, the USFL's Glamour Team (1983-1986) -Curtis Walker - In 1983, America began a brief flirtation with spring football as the United States Football League made its debut. With the signing of Heisman winner Herschel Walker, the New Jersey Generals were instantly thrust into national prominence. One year later, the team's profile would continue to grow after real estate magnate Donald Trump purchased the Generals, and over the next two years, he would spare no expense to bring in more star-quality talent. Easily his biggest coup was the signing of Boston College's Doug Flutie, college football's most prolific passer, giving the Generals their second Heisman winner in three years. Relive this unique era of professional football from its inception to its unnecessary downfall with this detailed week-by-week history of the USFL's marquee franchise. Included are Generals and league news, statistics, lineups and play-by-play.
