Area December 16, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 5 New history book details heroism of John Fell William “Pat” Schuber (on the leadership skills of George Washington), and Palisades Interstate Park historian Eric Nelsen (on the 1779 Closter Landing raids). The book, edited by Barbara Z. Marchant, also features a foreword by renowned historian Barnet Schecter, author of “The Battle for New York.” As Schecter writes in the foreword, “These richly detailed essays bring Revolutionary Bergen County to life, revealing the upheaval and suffering endured by individuals caught between opposing armies and torn by conflicting allegiances to family, church, community and country.” Fell led the resistance against the British and their sympathizers in Bergen County, to the point where he was known as “the great Tory Hunter.” Fell’s house, which still stands at 475 Franklin Turnpike in Allendale, is the focus of a grassroots preservation effort. The book, which includes several photographs, sells for $21.95. It is available in Allendale at Rohsler’s Allendale Nursery. Proceeds from the sales will benefit efforts to purchase and preserve the Fell House. A new book from the History Press sheds new light on the life and trying times of Revolutionary War hero John Fell of Allendale. The book, “Revolutionary Bergen County: The Road to Independence,” includes an essay by Allendale author Jim Wright about Fell’s harrowing time as a prisoner of war in Britain’s Provost Jail in New York City – and the historic secret diary he kept during his 10-month imprisonment. The 192-page book also features essays by Bergen County historian Kevin Wright (on the old Campbell Tavern in Hackensack), former Bergen County Executive DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS W/COUPON • Exp 12/31/09 • Not Combinable SALE NOW!
