Revolutionary War

Jul 02

John Gearing, author of "Schenectady Genesis, Vol.2: Evolution, 1760-1798" outlines patriot and Tory family allegiances in the Mohawk Valley.  Schenectady itself played a vital role as a frontier post in the quest for independence.  Vale’s Revolutionary War monument will be visited.  This also is a chance to ask an authority questions on the subject.

Tours start at 2 p.m. from the Caretaker's Cottage adjacent to the main entrance on State Street.

There is ample parking available and due to the size of the cemetery/park a shuttle bus is used. There is a $7 donation requested with children under 12 free.
