The Year 1777 and the American Revolution

October 7, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Site interpreter and historian Paul Andriscin gives an illustrated talk about events on Long Island, New York City, and British Gen. William Howe’s effort to capture Philadelphia. Were these factors that led to the failure of Burgoyne’s plan to split off New England from the rest of the United States?
