October 03, 2017: Jersey Gold
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mark your calendar for Tuesday evening, October 3, at the New Jersey Historical Society, where you’ll hear some of the many New Jersey stories of the 1849 California Gold Rush. The protagonists have names like Baldwin, Boyden, Crockett, Darcy, Kinney, Meeker and Pennington, names that resonate in New Jersey’s history.

Our speaker that evening will be Margaret Casterline Bowen, co-author of a new book entitled Jersey Gold: The Newark Overland Company’s Trek to California, 1849 (University of Oklahoma Press).
