TextThis property is a special property in this wiki. <p>[A] A six-inning game of base bal <p>[A] A six-inning game of base ball was played at Camp Seminary on Saturday November 16, 1861. The 2<sup>nd</sup> NJ challenged the 1<sup>st</sup> NJ and prevailed. A member of the 2<sup>nd</sup> NJ sent a short report and box to the Newark newspaper.</p> <p>[B] <span style="font-size: 14px;">Members of the 2</span><sup>nd</sup><span style="font-size: 14px;"> New Jersey regiment formed the Excelsior club, evidently named for the Newark Excelsior [confirm existence?] in late November 1861. A report of an intramural game between Golder's side and Collins' side appeared in a Newark paper. The game, won 33-20 by the Golder contingent, lasted 6 innings and took four hours to play. The correspondent concludes: "The day passed off pleasantly all around, and I think every one of us enjoyed ourselves duely [sic?]. We all hope to be at home one year hence to dine with those who love us. God grant it!"</span></p> <p> </p> t;/span></p> <p> </p>
