  • Richard Smith Coxe: Law and Politics in a Maturing Republic

    • Authors: Bruce A. Bendler
      Pages: 1 - 33
      Abstract: Richard Smith Coxe was the descendant of a prominent Burlington, New Jersey, family. He followed in the footsteps of his father, William Coxe, by affiliating with the Federalist Party until its demise after the War of 1812. After manifesting an interest in New Jersey politics early in his career, Coxe left his home state, and its political life, relocating to Washington, DC, where he became a prominent attorney. In the nation’s capital, he specialized in matters of maritime and international law. For a time, he worked closely with fellow New Jerseyan and Secretary of the Navy Samuel Southard. Despite his new focus on a legal career, Coxe remained, to a lesser degree, politically active, supporting the Whig Party, especially Henry Clay and William Henry Harrison. Although his political views were based on Federalist, then Whig, principles, Coxe’s legal career led him, at times, to take exception to those principles. For example, while not overtly supporting war with Mexico in 1846, unlike many Whigs, he saw the claims of clients who had suffered losses because of political and social turbulence in Mexico as justification for more forceful action against that nation.

  • Putting the Black Ink Back into Print: Black Newark/Black New Ark

    • Authors: Jennifer Caroccio Maldonado
      Pages: 34 - 49
      Abstract: This essay makes the case for the 1968 community newspaper Black Newark as an archival site that provides an alternative account of the growth of the Black Power movement in the city of Newark. The issues written about in this radical publication are an abundant resource for historians and researchers of New Jersey culture and Black cultural production in the United States. This essay contests the fact that no books devoted to the history of the Black press in the United States or surveys of African American newspapers make mention of Black Newark. It is the aim of this essay to examine both the 1968 edition of Black Newark and the later 1972–1974 edition of Black New Ark with the express goal of including the publications in the archive of both the history of Newark, New Jersey, and the Black press in the United States.

  • Organizing the Home Front: The American Women’s Voluntary Services in
           New Jersey during World War II

    • Authors: Patricia Chappine
      Pages: 50 - 68
      Abstract: During World War II (WWII), the American Women’s Voluntary Services (AWVS) became the largest service organization in the U.S. At the onset of American entry into WWII, the AWVS already included 18,000 volunteers. Within two years of its creation, the group expanded to 350 chapters nationwide, with the height of its wartime membership reaching roughly 325,000. Both on a national and local level, the AWVS proved instrumental to the success of home-front mobilization during WWII. With numerous community chapters, significant wartime initiatives, and proximity to the national AWVS in New York City, the New Jersey groups serve as a starting point for a more nuanced reflection on the AWVS during WWII. Along with considerations of gendered citizenship and volunteerism, the narrative of the AWVS presents women who both adhered to accepted forms of volunteerism and pushed social boundaries. The activities of the AWVS occupied a space somewhere in between nurturing and militaristic, blurring gendered lines of acceptable wartime participation and occupying a unique role not easily categorized. These women reimagined local activism and cooperation as encompassing more than their socially accepted supporting roles and expanded into areas of civilian defense, disaster response, emergency preparedness, and more.

  • Daniel Hendrickson of Middletown, New Jersey: An Eighteenth-Century
           Farmer, Entrepreneur, and Artist in the Limner Tradition

    • Authors: Joseph W. Hammond
      Pages: 69 - 151
      Abstract: In every generation there are individuals who succeed in a wide variety of activities that are seemingly unrelated to each other. Today we might describe them as overachievers, or perhaps some sort of so-called Renaissance personality endowed with a Midas touch. Daniel Hendrickson, an eighteenth-century entrepreneur from Middletown, Monmouth County, New Jersey, was just such a person. He engaged in farming, coastwise shipping, milling, distilling, and many other business endeavors. He also became an author in print, a musician, a deacon in the Reformed Dutch Church, and a very versatile artist in the limner tradition, which by definition means an early painter with little or no formal training. This essay touches on the many aspects of Hendrickson’s extraordinary life, then focuses primarily on his artistic career.

  • New Jersey Photographers of the Civil War and Postwar Era: John P. Doremus

    • Authors: Gary D. Saretzky, Joseph G. Bilby
      Pages: 152 - 223
      Abstract: Of the more than 3,000 photographers active in New Jersey in the nineteenth century, a number of them were itinerant camera workers at some point during their careers, operating with a horse-drawn wagon. Some photographers, especially those taking views, circulated locally even when they had a gallery where they did portraits and sold other kinds of photographs. Like many other American photographers who did not always wait for customers, John P. Doremus began working in the medium during the Civil War, when there was a strong market for portraits. Doremus is distinguished in that, for much of the latter 1870s and 1880s, he lived and worked on a floating gallery on the Mississippi River while his business back home in Paterson, Passaic County, was managed by his family. For this remarkable episode in his career, he was inducted into the National Rivers Hall of Fame in 1991. He is also exceptional in that he kept a journal in which he recorded fascinating details about his experiences. This essay provides a case study of an able and ambitious photographer and entrepreneur whose career, characterized by both typical and unique experiences, sheds light on photographic and business practices of his era.

  • Timbuctoo and the First Emancipation of the Early-Nineteenth Century

    • Authors: Guy Weston
      Pages: 224 - 259
      Abstract: Timbuctoo is an unincorporated community in Westampton Township, Burlington County, New Jersey. It was settled by formerly enslaved and free Black people beginning in 1826, reaching approximately 125 residents by 1860. The community also included at least two churches, two schools, and a benevolent association that helped people in the community in need. A vast collection of documentation of Timbuctoo’s founding and early development is available for research, including more than 100 years of deed and legal documents in a single PDF file; deeds and certificates of incorporation for churches, schools, and the benevolent association; newspapers that include death notices and feature articles as early as 1851; as well as vital records. The vital records are found in the New Jersey Births and Christenings Index and the New Jersey Deaths and Burials Index, with Timbuctoo resident listings as early as the 1850s. Prompted by recent emphasis on celebrating the end of slavery with the establishment of Juneteenth as a national holiday, this article explores what emancipation meant for an antebellum free Black community in southern New Jersey, drawing substantially from the primary sources above to provide a unique contemporaneous perspective. Questions for future research are mentioned throughout the narrative to illuminate compelling potential research projects.

  • Lost and Found: Rediscovering a Seventeenth Century Map of New Jersey

    • Authors: Douglas T. Aumack
      Pages: 327 - 342
      Abstract: This narrative details the first complete map of New Jersey; one that identified the locations of settlements of indigenous people. Created by Hessel Gerritsz, a Dutch master cartographer, this relatively unknown 1616 map of New Jersey does not appear in the four major publications that exhibit New Jersey maps, published between 1973 and 2014.
