Patriots and Spies in Revolutionary New York with author A.J. Schenkman

June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Just in time for Independence Day, discover stories of the American Revolution!

As part of our speaker series, the Wappingers Historical Society presents A.J. Schenkman, local historian and author of “Patriots and Spies in Revolutionary New York”, and several other books pertaining to NYS and Ulster County history.

Spies! Loyalists! Tories! Conspiracy! Strange messages? Codes in invisible ink? The American Revolution was first and foremost a civil war that tore at the very fabric of families as well as society. Patriots were determined to separate from England, while Loyalists were just as determined to defeat what they saw as a rebellion. Many do not know that during several critical periods the war was almost fatally undermined by English sympathizers or in some cases opportunistic Patriots. Mr. Schenkman will share some of stories regarding important moments in New York State’s history during the American Revolution. https://www.wappingershistoricalsociety.org/events/speaker-series-patriots-and-spies-in-revolutionary-ny-with-a-j-schenkman
