Encampment: Fireside Tales and Tunes

Saturday, August 27, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Encampment

Mark the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn with a truly revolutionary night. As you sip a drink and stroll the twilight landscape, Revolutionary War soldiers will illustrate life in the midst of a battle – setting up camp among Green-Wood’s hills, cooking, socializing, and steeling themselves for the next day’s battle. Of course, the battles we modern New Yorkers face are not with the British, but often ourselves. By the light of the fire, Susan Kent of TELL IT: BROOKLYN will host an outdoor storytelling program that takes on battles of the body, spirit, and mind. Seasoned storytellers will take the stage, but attendees so inclined to tell their own battle story can throw their hat in the ring, too. The songwriting duo Charming Disaster will provide musical interludes.
