“Exquisite reproductions of the maps display 18th-century America as Washington saw it.“ —The New York Times

Friend of Green-Wood and best-selling author Barnet Schecter talks about his most recent and widely praised compendium of the maps George Washington both drew and purchased. The book crafts a unique portrait of the Father of Our Country. Following the book talk in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel, Schecter and Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman will lead a tour of the Battle of Brooklyn. Washington’s first battle after the signing of the Declaration of Independence was fought, in part, across Green-Wood’s grounds.
