re: primary source materials related to childhood studies in order to build a resource library

What an admirable project!

Keep children's health/nutrition/pediatrics in mind as a topic and great source of artifacts that all ages can relate to.

Re: Symposium (June 17, 2017) commemorating George Washington’s First Middlebrook Encampment, NJ, 1777

It seems the first Middlebrook encampment was important but not a turning point in the war. The description suggests it could, perhaps should, be seen that way. Not sure which "events of this encampment led to the British forces abandoning their New Jersey campaign in June, 1777." The war's first major land battle, the Battle of Monmouth, happened a year later, after the British abandoned Philadelphia the next year. It seems likely that capturing the rebel capital city, our largest seaport, enticed Howe; that he was pulled by that treasure not repulsed by Middlebrook.
