Bizarre History of Cape May: History, and punishments, have a way of repeating

Three centuries ago, as the calendar progressed from 1714 to 1715, the territory we now know as Cape May and Lower Township was quietly celebrating the transition of the years.

Being so few inhabitants there, crime was not a major concern. Oh, some rowdiness and fighting did stem from drinking too much rum from the Caribbean (one Presbyterian minister was ousted from his role because he was carried away, figuratively speaking).
