Revolutionary New York

Sat Feb 19th, 2022 - 2 to 3 pm
For Presidents' Day weekend, discover the American Revolution on the New York frontier.

This program begins with a Power Point presentation in the Visitor Center theater. Learn about choosing sides in the American Revolution; the St. Leger Campaign of 1777; raid warfare of 1778; the Sullivan Clinton Campaign; the devastating raids of 1780 and 1781; the death of Walter Butler and the conflict as it wound down. 

During the presentation, living history interpreters, portraying those who took part in many of these campaigns, will describe their clothing and equipment and what life was like for common people caught up in the war. 

The program will end with a tour of the fort that describes Fort Niagara's physical appearance during the Revolution.
