About the Author
Born November 14, 1928, Henry F. Skirbst has devoted his life to public service. Raised in Irvington, NJ, he was a police officer's son. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Kean College and earned his Master of Education from Rutgers University. For three decades, he impacted the lives of thousands in their perception of history, as a teacher. During this time, he also served his community as an elected official and helped establish various historiacl and environmental groups. Although retired in scenic Harmony Township, Mr. Skirbst has continued to teach others about history through his authoring of Tales and Trails: New Jersey's Places, People, and Past. Over the past two years, he became inspired to write the current book, Tales of a Battleground. Proclaiming the important role New Jersey played in the era of the American Revolution is the theme of this current book. Sadly ignored throughout history, this book makes the case that this small state played an enormous role in our nation's founding days.
