Due to inclement weather conditions, our October 29th walking tour with Cal Snyder and Lucy Oakley, "Washington, Lafayette and the Maryland 400," has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The Colonial Army first met the British in today’s Prospect Park. We’ll walk the battlefield, starting at Battle Pass, then find Stanford White’s striking but little-known memorial to the Maryland 400, see Daniel Chester French’s surpassing tribute to Lafayette and end at the Old Stone House. Other sites of tribute will be seen, including the statue "Angel of Death" and Grand Army Plaza. Walking tours are limited to 35 guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.
Cal Snyder is the author of Out of Fire and Valor: The War Memorials of New York City from the Revolution to 9/11. Lucy Oakley is Head of Education and Programs at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.
The meeting locations of walking tours will be provided when you purchase your tickets.
