Much has been written about the American Revolution and the many battles and campaigns waged within New York State’s borders. There is even a Hudson River Valley National Heritage website that lists pages of historic sites related to the Revolutionary War activity in the region. Summing up much of this history, and utilizing historic and family records, Michael Cantine* will present an upcoming talk entitled: Ulster County and New Paltz in the American Revolution.
