Experience New Jersey’s transition from a colony to a state in our

From Crown to Country program

Using period documents and first hand accounts of the Revolutionary struggle, museum educators dressed in period clothing transform the students into citizens of the colony of New Jersey. During the tour, the students will hear about Loyalists, Patriots and Quakers. The students also will hear the part Liberty Hall and its occupants played in gaining independence. The Tour concludes with the students being asked to sign, with a quill pen on parchment, one of three oaths: Loyalty to the King, Loyalty to the Patriots or To Remain Neutral.
