On Saturday, 5/31/2014, we gathered to dedicate a monument  to those South Jersey Patriots, killed, wounded or captured during the war for Independence.  The program was a resounding success with attendance by County Executive Dennis Levinson,  Freeholders Alex Marino, Richard Dase and John Risley along with Atlantic County Surrogate Jim Curcio and  Compatriot Mayor Gary Giberson.  For those who could not attend, the video is posted below, with more pictures to follow.




And thanks to our friend Lynn Wood for the linked video.
