Black Maria Film Festival Series: "The Land Beneath Our Feet" @ Hoboken Historical Museum
October 18 (Wednesday)
Oct 18 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

On Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 6:30 pm, the Museum is proud to welcome back Hudson County’s own Black Maria Film Festival for the second of a four-part monthly series of award-winning hour-long documentaries. Program 2 features “The Land Beneath Our Feet,” by Sarita Siegel and Gregg Mittman. When the earliest known surviving motion picture record of Liberia resurfaced – rare archival footage from a 1926 Harvard expedition to Liberia – it began a collaborative project to bring the film footage back to Liberia. “The Land Beneath Our Feet” is an extraordinary film spanning a four-year investigation into history, memory, and present-day land conflicts in Liberia.

Black Maria Executive Director Jane Steuerwald will host the custom-curated programs, and lead a discussion with the audience. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the films will screen at 7 pm, each lasting about an hour. Admission is a suggested $5 donation, which includes light refreshments.

Through December, a different award-winning one-hour documentary film from the Black Maria’s Global Insights collection will be presented, thanks to the support of the Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs and Tourism. The second program is Wednesday, Oct. 18, the third is Wed., Nov. 29, and the final session is Wed., Dec. 13.

Now in its 36th consecutive year, the Black Maria Film Festival focuses on diverse short films – narrative, experimental, animation, and documentary – including those, which address issues and struggles within contemporary society such as the environment, public health, race and class, family, sustainability, and more.

WWI Centennial Talk: Howard Bartholf, “Camp Merritt, An American Portal to the Great War”
@ Hoboken Historical Museum
WWI Centennial Talk: Howard Bartholf, "Camp Merritt, An American Portal to the Great War" @ Hoboken Historical Museum
November 5 (Sunday)
Nov 5 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

As part of the Museum’s World War I Centennial Lecture Series, on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 4 pm, historian and author Howard Bartholf will discuss the topic, “Camp Merritt, An American Portal to the Great War.

Every day, thousands of cars circumnavigate the traffic circle on the border of Cresskill and Dumont, NJ, around the 65-foot-tall monument marking the former site of Camp Merritt. The camp was rapidly built in 1917, on leased farmland, to serve as the largest of three nearby camps serving Hoboken’s port of embarkation.  More than a million soldiers and nurses transited the 770-acre camp assembled from surrounding farms and named for the distinguished Union Army General, Wesley Merritt. Among the many famous people who served there were future president Harry S. Truman; Sgt. Alvin C. York, the first World War’s most decorated veteran; young clerk/typist Arthur Godfrey, later one of the country’s most popular radio and TV personalities; baseball catcher Hank Gowdy, and notorious bootlegger and gangster Jack “Legs” Diamond, who spent time in Camp Merritt’s stockade. It was closed and decommissioned by 1920. 

Howard Bartholf was born in Hoboken in 1947, and grew up in Bergen County. He served in the United States Army from September 1965 until 1971, assigned to Fort Dix New Jersey; Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana; Fort Huachuca, Arizona; Fort Eustis, Virginia, and a year in the Republic of South Vietnam. In Vietnam, he was assigned to the 459th Signal Battalion, 21st Signal Group, 1st Signal Brigade, earning the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm and the Meritorious Unit Citation. Bartholf is also a member and holder of the Order of the Silver Rose, which honors Vietnam Veterans exposed to and affected by Agent Orange. In October 2009, Bartholf was awarded the Bronze Order of Mercury by the United States Army Signal Corps Regimental Association and made an Honorary Member of the Regiment by order of the Secretary of the Army. 

Bartholf is a published author, with articles in “Vietnam Magazine” and in “On Point,” the Journal of the Army Historical Foundation, of which he is a member. He is also a member of the International Naval Research Organization (INRO), the Navy League, the Sons of the American Revolution, the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the 459th Signal Battalion Association. In addition, he serves on the Board of Directors of the 1st Signal Brigade Association and is a Charter Member of the National Museum of the United States Army. Bartholf served for six years as President of the battleship U.S.S. South Dakota Second Generation Group. By profession, he is a retired industrial sales engineer with over 43 years in the industrial, municipal and military marketplaces, now residing in Virginia.
