Price: $60.00
Middletown Baptist Church in Monmouth County ("Old First Church" since 1963) is the oldest Baptist congregation in New Jersey and one of the constituting churches of the Philadelphia Baptist Association in 1707. Church meeting minutes, membership rolls, congregational correspondence, and personal letters cover the period 1712 to 1811. The earliest years after the church's founding in 1688 are largely unknown due to discord and subsequent excision of records. Records for the years 1741 to 1785 are incomplete, but transcribed entries from "Elder Mott's Journal" provide a first-hand account of the church's life during that period.

Like a Great Feudal Landlord: How Architecture and Slavery Created the World of the Upcountry Planter
Product Code: HH1017
ISBN: 9780881468229
Availability: Not currently available. (Backorder policy)
Price: $40.00
The Southern Greek Revival plantation house is one which has drawn attention in history and fiction. Yet, the symbolism and meaning of these homes is often overlooked. Greek Revival architecture had a particular appeal to many Upcountry planters as it represented a renewal of the ideals embodied by the ancient Greeks, who firmly adhered to a division of society as well as the need for and use of slavery. Additionally, the Upcountry cotton planter of the nineteenth century sought to differentiate himself from the planters of the previous generation, who used the Federal style of architecture. With the prosperity generated from cotton, the Upcountry planters from Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina saw in their Greek Revival plantation house a lasting legacy to their power and societal status. The muted voices of the slaves who enabled the planters to live in these homes are articulated here, as well as the exploration of the dramatic changes brought about by the Civil War.
