Lectures, Concerts, Films
Presented by:
The Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee
of the Cranford Historical Society
The 150th anniversary of the American Civil War begins in 2011 and runs until 2015. On October
27, 2009, the Township of Cranford adopted a resolution designating the Cranford Historical
Society as the lead organization for celebrating that defining period of American history.  The Society
will be sponsoring educational and entertaining programs throughout the anniversary to broaden public
awareness of the transformative events leading to the conclusion of that great struggle.
