Walks & Talks: Docent Led Gallery Tour of The Battle of Brooklyn

Where: New-York Historical Society

170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

When: Saturday, November 19, 2016, 3:00 pm

Details: What really happened at the Battle of Brooklyn? Join us for an in-depth, docent-led tour to explore the first major armed campaign for the colonies after declaring independence from Great Britain. On August 27, 1776, on the marshy fields of Gowanus and Red Hook, George Washington and his rag-tag army of untrained soldiers fought the British Army, one of the most powerful military forces in the world. The rebels were ingloriously defeated. The Battle of Brooklyn stands as the largest single battle of the Revolutionary War, and one that would loom large in George Washington’s consciousness.

Cost: $25 (members $5)
