“The name ‘Monmouth’ has been synonymous with the defense of freedom since our country’s inception,” said Monmouth County Archivist Gary D. Saretzky. “Named for the brave soldiers who gave their lives just a few miles away at the Battle of Monmouth Court House in 1778, Fort Monmouth was the site of some of the most significant communications and electronics breakthroughs in military history.”
Archives and History Day will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan.
More than 60 local and state history organizations will set-up displays about topics related to New Jersey history and their organization. Attendees are encouraged to dress in period costume from any era and to donate a history-related prize for the annual History Game.
The complete event also includes a History Forum, awards presentations, and a tour of the Monmouth County Archives, for which reservation is required.
