Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi (C) draws the winning ticket for a book about the Civil War era at the Civil War exhibit in the Union County Courthouse in Elizabeth. She is joined by Ethel Washington and Charles Shallcross of the Union County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee. There will be a drawing for a book about the Civil War each month.

The Civil War exhibit will be on display until 2015 in the rotunda of the Union County Courthouse, 2 Broad Street in historic midtown Elizabeth. To participate in the drawing for a Civil War book, visitors may fill out a coupon with their name, phone number and/or email address, and drop the coupon in the box provided in the rotunda.

The exhibit may be viewed weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The displays will change from time to time. Anyone wishing to loan historical artifacts from the Civil War era for the exhibit can contact committee member Katherine Craig at 908-282-7617. All objects will be secured, locked and acknowledged.
