About The Event
We are pleased to announce that noted author and historian, Joanne Hamilton Rajoppi, will speak at the Long Hill Township Historical Society on October 5th at 7 pm. at the Long Hill First Aid Squad building. Ms. Rajoppi will present her most recently published book, Northern Women in the Aftermath of the Civil War. The book follows the women of the Hamilton family after the war and charts the sacrifices and unique role of women in the north following the war years.
A contributor to Meet Your Revolutionary Neighbors: Crossroads of the American Revolution, she also chronicled the military service of her great-grandfather during the Civil War in her book New Brunswick and the Civil War: The Brunswick Boys in the Great Rebellion based on the letters he wrote to his family.
Ms. Rajoppi is also a trustee and officer of the Union County Historical Society. During the Civil War Sesquicentennial, she established and chaired a four-year revolving exhibit in the historic Union County Courthouse. She serves as the Union County Clerk and is a former mayor of her hometown.
She will be available after the event to autograph her books which are available on Amazon.com as well as at the October 5th event.
