Recommended for all ages
Free with Museum Admission

Spend your weekend at the New-York Historical Society visiting our new exhibition, Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence, and meeting Revolutionary War soldiers!

On Saturday, November 18, come and see Living Historians from the Second Continental Light Dragoons, an organization that brings to life the first congressionally authorized cavalry regiment in American history. (In fact, it is still recognized as an active unit in the military!) They will be stationed at the Museum to answer your questions about fighting on horseback. Take a close look at the special helmets, a military saddle, and other equipment they used, or watch a saber drill!

Want to experience more of the War for Independence? Visit the Museum on Sunday to meet the 3rd New Jersey Regiment and discover how men and women fought the Revolution on the ground.
