Posted: 9/25/2018
Contact: Christopher Ciely, 201-360-4069, cciely@hccc.edu

 

Event is part of College’s ‘WWI: Beyond Flanders Fields’ exhibition.


September 25, 2018, Jersey City, NJ – New Jersey and New York served as a hub for American involvement in World War I.  There are more than 50 locations around New York Harbor that are of historical significance.  The community is invited to learn the stories behind these landmarks when acclaimed historian and author Kevin Fitzpatrick gives a lecture as part of the Hudson County Community College WWI: Beyond Flanders Fields exhibition.

The free event will be held on Tuesday, September 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Dineen Hull Gallery on the sixth floor of the College’s Gabert Library Building at 71 Sip Avenue in Jersey City.

Mr. Fitzpatrick will discuss training camps, recruitment efforts, and patriotic activities that took place around New Jersey and New York. The landmarks and memorials that will be discussed are featured in his book, WWI New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War. The program director for New York City’s WWI Centennial Committee and an author of seven books, Mr. Fitzpatrick is a noted historian, reenactor, and living history storyteller.

“There are so many little-known, yet very interesting, facts about our community’s involvement in World War I, and this lecture is the ideal opportunity to learn about them,” said Dr. Chris Reber, President of HCCC.

The College’s “WWI: Beyond Flanders Fields” exhibition continues through November 16. It features artifacts such as uniforms, trench art, medals, posters, books, a memorial, and film screenings.

The Dineen Hull Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. More information on this event and this season’s offerings may be obtained at www.hccc.edu/cultural-affairs or by emailing Cultural Affairs Director Michelle Vitale at mvitale@hccc.edu.
