Join our colleagues from Green-Wood Cemetery for this Battle of Brooklyn Zoom event!
Much of the Battle of Brooklyn was fought across what is now Green-Wood’s grounds with General George Washington in command. Join Barnet Schecter, author of the widely-praised The Battle for New York: The City at the Heart of the American Revolution, and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, for a conversation about that battle—two days before its 245th anniversary—and what happened on that long-ago day across the roads, hills, and valleys that would become The Green-Wood Cemetery.
Barnet and Jeff will highlight several patriot defensive positions, Battle Hill (the highest natural point in Brooklyn), the gravesites of Revolutionary War soldiers (including one who took part in the Boston Tea Party and another who was captured during the Battle of Brooklyn), and much more.
