Apr 27, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $30
Re-discover the magic of the borough as your explore the blood and stories embedded in the ground beneath your feet with this unique walking tour of Brooklyn.
The first major military engagement the United States were involved in as an independent country – to this day the largest naval battle ever fought by the US – was fought in Sunset Park, Park Slope, Gowanus, Red Hook, Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights. 6 weeks after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George Washington engaged the British, now considered occupants, in a gory losing battle. The fields of Brooklyn were watered by the blood and fertilized by the corpses of American separatists.
238 years later, we examine the battlefield.
