This unique catalog contains all the NJ Civil War artifacts which were in the Macculloch Hall Historical Museum’s Exhibit “Gone for a Soldier:” Jerseymen in the Civil War, which ran from late 2011 to mid 2012. This catalog was intended as a companion guide for visitors to the exhibit, giving more detail on all each item as well as a lasting memory to take home. It brings together many unseen or unknown civil war artifacts, nearly 200 items, into one place for the first time since the late 1880’s. The items contained within are from New Jersey historical societies, museums and private collections throughout New Jersey and as far away as DC, Maryland and even Richmond, VA. This publication contains, uniforms, rifles, swords, accoutrements, flags, drums, recruiting posters, and other diverse items including many personal belongings carried by these New Jersey soldiers, many who never came back from the war. This catalog also tells a story of those New Jersey Soldiers, some fighting for the Confederacy too, and reminds us of the valor of the 80,000 Jerseymen who took up arms to save the Union.
