The Battle of Brooklyn

Thursday October 24, 2019
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM


The Battle of Brooklyn was the largest battle of the American Revolutionary War and took place just six weeks after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Taking place on August 27, 1776, it resulted in a crushing defeat for George Washington and the Continental Army, and could have ended the American Revolution, if not for some providential circumstances.  It was the Continental Army's perseverance through unimaginable difficulties that allowed our forces to turn the tables on the British only four months later in Trenton, NJ.

This one-hour talk with many illustrative images, describes the background, details, and effects of the battle on a pivotal point in U.S. history.

This lecture will be presented by Barry Singer, who has followed his passion for history by teaching at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University, Historical Society of Princeton, and other venues.
