The Burning of Kingston 2017 

click to enlarge sl_burning-of-kingston-2.jpg

In October of 1777, British soldiers landed at Kingston Point and marched up to the Stockade area, setting fire to houses along the way in New York’s newly established capital. Three hundred buildings burned in just a few hours. Now the city celebrates its great conflagration every two years with a Revolutionary War reenactment. The weekend-long event is held from October 13 to 15 and includes a Colonial grand ball, cemetery ghost tours, bucket brigade contests, exhibitions, militia and redcoat camp drills and tours, games, and more. (845) 481-4550.
