Cover Story: Morven Opera
Richard Stockton's Morven mansion is a popular museum, located on a street named after him, and he is certainly a Founding Father. As we enjoy the 4th of July weekend, things were not so merry for Stockton after he defied the imperial British and signed the Declaration of Independence. U.S. 1 preview editor Dan Aubrey offers readers an operatic treatment of Stockton's ensuing tribulations.
Next issue of U.S. 1: July 8, 2015.
