A day of family-friendly events includes re-enactors, artillery demonstrations, display of regimental flags, and much more! Green-Wood will commemorate the 243rd anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn with a day of living history. Fought on August 27, 1776 across Brooklyn, including land that is now part of The Green-Wood Cemetery, it was the first battle of the American Revolution to be waged after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In terms of the total number of British and American troops poised and ready to fight, this was the largest battle of the Revolution. An optional donation is encouraged with your reservation to ensure the annual events may remain free of charge. Please register online for all events to gauge response. NOTE: Attendees must stand within the designated viewing areas when the cannons are being fired. The loud noises can cause permanent damage to the ears or even hearing loss.
