Explore Our Exhibit
The Battle of Brooklyn was the first and largest battle of the American Revolution and the first official battle fought by the United States Army. Our permanent exhibit delves into the Battle, from the tense buildup through its dramatic climax. Informative for everyone from families to those with a deeper interest in the Revolutionary War, the exhibit features period weapons and clothes, as well as documents and artifacts that bring the fateful events of August 1776 to life.
