Please join Morristown National Historical Park (NHP) for a special presentation ofStory-Songs of Historyby author, singer-songwriter and New Jersey resident Gordon Thomas Ward. This delightful performance of stirring tales, told through song and spoken word captures both attention and imagination. Haunting melodies, a multi-instrumental accompaniment, and illustrative lyrics transport listeners on journeys in the company of Colonial soldier Joseph Plumb Martin, a Revolutionary War ghost, Native Americans, Civil War soldiers, and more! This presentation has been described by adults as "spellbinding," and, as one high school student remarked, "The people and events seem real, so I can relate to them."

The program begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, June 19, 2016, in Morristown NHP’s Washington’s Headquarters Museum, 30 Washington Place, Morristown, New Jersey. Admission to the program is free.

To complement the program, on display will be a first edition from Morristown NHP’s curatorial collection of Joseph Plumb Martin’s eyewitness account of the Revolutionary War.
