Directed by Joseph McCarthy, Baltic St. Media Productions
Joseph McCarthy’s film, The Brave Man, tells the story of the Maryland 400 and their fateful stand against the British and Hessians on August 27, 1776.
Filmed in Brooklyn in 2001, The Brave Man takes place around the Old Stone House on the sites where the Battle took place; contrasting the smoke of musket fire with contemporary Fourth Avenue.
“Not the usual re-enactment of a battle of the American Revolution … a story of putting a cause first over personal safety… fast-paced… History teachers in junior high school and above will want to use this production with classes studying the American Revolution as well as New York history.”
~ School Library Journal (April 2002)
