Recommendation: Two Articles of Interest

There are two articles in the Journal of the American Revolution that I would like to recommend. One is by Michael Sheehan who writes about Stony Point Battlefield and Lighthouse State Historic Site on the Hudson River where my friend Julia Warger is the site manager. Taken from the Journal is a mini bio of Mike:

Michael J. F. Sheehan holds a bachelor’s degree in History from Ramapo College of New Jersey. He is the Senior Historian at the Stony Point Battlefield State Historic Site where he has been for nine years. Michael has spent most of his time studying the American Revolution with a focus on the role of the Hudson Highlands and Lower Hudson Valley, where he has lived his whole life. In his free time, he is currently working on a book about the history of King’s Ferry during the American Revolution and he has been playing live traditional Irish music in the Stony Point area for five years. Deeply involved in the Brigade of the American Revolution since 2008, Michael has reenacted and spoken at countless historic sites and societies in New York and New Jersey, and is currently serving as a board member for Lamb’s Artillery Company.

Here is a photo of Mike in his 18th century attire on the day my husband and I visited the site.

Another article in the Journal, by Richard J. Werther, will be of interest to those of you who have read my posts on GRACE GALLOWAY, the loyalist wife who stayed behind in Philadelphia, when her husband and daughter fled, to try to prevent their property from being confiscated. See my posts here, here, here, and here. Read Werther’s piece here.
