    Historian John Zinn will present a lecture entitled "Portrait of a Civil War Marriage." The talk is based on more than 40 letters that William Lloyd of the 33rd New Jersey Regiment wrote to his wife, Mary, who lived in both Hoboken and Matawan during the war. Zinn is an independent historian. He is Chair of the NJ Civil War 150th Anniversary Committee. He is the author of "The Mutinous Regiment: The Thirty-third New Jersey in the Civil War". He has contributed many articles to anthologies on New Jersey and the Civil War. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program was arranged by the Cranford Historical Society and the Cranford Public Library. Part of the “Civil War 150 Project,” it is presented by the Library of America in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
