Details During the Revolutionary War, Tarrytown played a dramatic and crucial role in the achievement of American independence; yet, revolutionary events in Tarrytown and Westchester, once celebrated and known to both locals and Americans across the nation, have lapsed into obscurity or become the stuff of legend. This illustrated lecture provides an overview of important events and locations in the area around Tarrytown during the Revolutionary War and examines the importance of the era’s legacy on its historical development, on regional identity, and on the formation of national character.
Presenter Erik Weiselberg, Ph.D. also serves as the Village Historian in Irvington, New York, teaches social studies at Irvington High School, Irvington, New York, and is the recipient of the 2020 Hudson River Patriots Chapter, NSDAR and 2020 NYS DAR Outstanding Teacher of American History award.
