Virtual Documenting the Past: Livingston and the New Jersey Constitution

Students will step into the role of a historian and take a virtual tour of Liberty Hall Museum. Guided by museum educators in period dress, students will explore William Livingston’s home, family, and life and discuss how those aspects influenced his political decisions and affected several articles within the first New Jersey Constitution. The program concludes with a guided exploration into studying and transcribing primary source documents from the 1776 New Jersey Constitution in relation to Livingston’s writings.
