Lecture to Honor Civil War Soldiers in Pennington African Cemetery


Wednesday July 19, 2017
7:00 PM

On Wednesday, July 19, Civil War Historian and retired National Archives Regional Director Kellee Green Blake will present "No Slave Beneath that Starry Flag: Civil War Heroes of the Pennington African Cemetery". Blake's lecture will share stories of Pennington's own as they fought with the Union Army as part of famed, yet segregated units, including the United States "Colored" Troops (USCT). These local men won battles in Virginia, defended Union territory in Louisiana, and even led in the April 1865 liberation of Richmond. With disparate pay, inconsistent support, and overwhelming demands, they nevertheless dared all to "smite for liberty." Those who returned to Pennington were irrevocably changed by their wartime experiences and assumed new roles in community. 

The free lecture will be held at 7:00 p.m. on July 19 at The Pennington School, 112 W. Delaware Ave., Pennington, NJ 08534.
