Battle of Brooklyn Heights Bus Trip

Please see the link below which includes the photos taken yesterday, August 20th, during the MDSSAR sponsored trip to Brooklyn to commemorate the sacrifices made by the soldiers from Maryland during the Battle Of Brooklyn (aka Battle of Brooklyn Heights and Battle of Long Island) in August 1776.

This excellent and important event was coordinated by our own Chapter member and MDSSAR 3rd VP Tim Mallory. The ceremony included the placing of the Maryland Society wreath by MDSSAR President William Smithson at the “Maryland 400” monument.
