A hike into history at Mount Independence this Saturday, May 6

Southern Battery

The central of three southern batteries started by the Americans in the late spring of 1777 and completed by German forces fighting for the British occupying the Mount after the American evacuation.

I’ll be one of three co-leaders of a hike along the rocky slopes of Mount Independence this Saturday, May 6. The hike will start at 1:00 p.m. with some show and tell at the museum, visitor center of artifacts found on site by archaeologists over the years. Then, we’ll venture out onto the trails, and even off trail, to explore the defenses built by American and British forces in 1776 and 1777. Learn more about the hike here.
