Lower Manhattan – Did you know?
New York City is a city of neighborhoods and no neighborhood has more spectacular sights, nor more important links to American and NYC history then Lower Manhattan.
New York played an important role in the story of American independence and was a growing urban center of about 20,000 crowded onto the southern tip of Manhattan Island when the rebellious Colonies declared their independence from England in 1776.
The Battle of Brooklyn (August 1776), was the first major battle after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and was the largest battle of the entire war. The city was occupied by the British in the wake of a series of American defeats and retreats in the summer and fall of 1776 and the port city became the central base for British operations during the conflict. NYC was also the last place in America that the British left, not until over two years after their ‘final’ defeat.
Some of the best introductions to New York’s Revolutionary War past can be found on YouTube. Here are 3 more. (m)
