Anderson Journal

The journal excerpts displayed above create a one-of-a-kind lens through which to view our community’s – and our country’s – past. All entries come from the diaries of John J. Anderson. Anderson was a wheelwright by trade and a Hunterdon County freeholder during the 1850s. The subjects of his daily journal entries range from the most mundane – such as repelling garden snakes – to what we now see as some of the more major events in America’s history, such as South Carolina’s precedent-setting secession from the union in 1860.
