Revolutionary War Ride
Revolutionary War Ride – Tuesday July 4 10:00 A.M. Prospect Park
Back by ***extra*** popular demand it’s THE BATTLE OF BROOKLYN. It started here (August 1776). Still one of the best kept secrets, the biggest battle of the Revolution, and we lost it! Eventually we regained our foothold and the British exited (allowing Ft Greene and Clinton Hill to become “hip” neighborhoods). It’s all here… the Old Stone House, The Maryland Memorial, Battle Pass in Prospect Park…The Prison Ships Martyr’s Monument… Bowling Green, and Fraunces Tavern. Join us on this “You Were There” Revolutionary War Ride. This Happy Face tour is light on miles yet packed with history. Bring lock, money for lunch (at an eatery sympathetic to our cause), and US $5.00 (no pounds please) as a donation to the Old Stone House Museum. Rain at start cancels.
