In late August 2016, Green-Wood Cemetery commemorated the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn, fought in 1776 on the grounds. The all-day event was an exciting and informative time thanks to living history demonstrations. The event culminated in a parade along the route to Battle Hill, where the memorials are for the Revolutionary War and Civil War. Attendees were encouraged to pick up early American flags to carry to the top of the hill – I chose the Grand Union flag. I hope you like this snapshot of the day!
