Hear Ye, Hear Ye The Declaration of Independence & the Toppling of King George

July 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On July 9, 1776, the New York Provincial Congress endorsed the Declaration of Independence issued in Philadelphia five days earlier. That night, General George Washington ordered the Declaration be read
aloud to American troops in Manhattan and Brooklyn preparing for the British assault. Join Scholar-in-Residence Dylan Yeats for a public reading of the Declaration in front of the Old Stone House this Saturday, July
9th at 4pm. Come add your own tyrannies and declare your independence!
