Yankee Doodle Defeat: The Story of the Battle of Brooklyn
August 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Enjoy the story of the Battle of Brooklyn as told by local historian Greg McMurray. Only in Brooklyn could such an absolute failure lead to one of the greatest triumphs of the war.
Combining traditional storytelling with live action reenactment, musical accompaniment, and audience participation, “Yankee Doodle Defeat” is the evening kick-off event to 2021’s Brooklyn Battle Week.
Come for the lecture, stay for the music, and get George Washington’s autograph. Join us for what promises to be a historic night to remember.
Free admission due to a generous grant from an New York City Artist Corps.
Outdoors on the Lawn at OSH, please RSVP via Eventbrite.
