Program Description

Event Details


From the Battle of White Plains and the crucial vote that made the Declaration of Independence unanimous to the capture of British spy Major John André with the plans for West Point in his boots, Westchester County played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. Constance Kehoe, president of Revolutionary Westchester 250, will highlight some of these crucial events, with a focus on the local sites and the people whose actions here made a difference to the outcome of our war for independence. Revolutionary Westchester 250 is building awareness and excitement for the events, places, ideas and people—both the unsung and the famous—of the Revolutionary War period in Westchester County, in preparation for the 250th anniversary in 2026.
