G.W. Booth of the 1st MD Cavalry CSA on Pickett’s Charge: “I witnessed the heroism and confident obedience with which our men reformed and held their position…" Even after defeat, they had no "appearance of disorder or demoralization.” #SoldierSaturday https://t.co/suhtSLfNAr mrlocalhistory photo

How do we remember Woodstock?
Was it the a utopian movement? A lost opportunity—a display by mostly white, middle-class attendees of self-indulgence, rather than a moment of renewed activism? Or a representation of everything “wrong” with the '60s? https://t.co/7VZ1BEliEg

2005 - No Nudes is Good News in Far Hills
On this day in local history: “No Nudes is Good News in Far Hills,” a front page headline said on Thursday, Aug. 28, 2005. An ordinance “creating a violation for public nudity, exposing one’s genetalia and public urination” was introduced by the Borough Council on Monday, Aug. 25. Borough Attorney Maryann Nergaard told the council that the proposal, which would subject violators to a fine of up to $1,250, grew out of issues that came up every October at the Far Hills Race Meeting, “where people perhaps had too much to drink and did not know what they were doing.” The proposal said there were currently no state regulations or laws that prohibited public urination or defecation in public, according to th article. • Bedminster Township’s “simmering stew of political bickering” boiled over at the Township Committee meeting on Monday, Aug. 25. There were calls for the resignation of Committeeman Kurt Joerger and allegations that Deputy Mayor Don Cross covered up his involvement in a complaint against a Burnt Mills Road farm stand that was subsequently robbed. Cross, in turn, pressed Mayor Amey Mesko to admit that she accepted a political contribution from the farm stand owners and used her position to unethically take a discounted membership at a local elite golf club. “It saddens me to watch this circus,” said Zaheer Jan, a Democrat who narrowly lost a race for the all-Republican committee the prior November. #dayinhistory #mrlocalhistory

Returning The Favor
Mike and the team find themselves a stone's throw from New York City, in the suburbs of New Jersey to surprise Megan McDowell: the founder of Heartworks: an organization of female Do-Gooder's helping local families to heal in times of grief, illness or injury. This incredible initiative was born out of the kindness shown to her family after losing a loved one in the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001.
