The Burlington County Library System is set to present a variety of reenactors who will bring history to life by portraying famous figures at several library locations, including Bordentown.
The new “Through Their Eyes” series will include presentations by the American Historical Theater. Hear “first-hand” accounts from some of history’s most fascinating people. This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
