andre_hangOn September 22, 1780, Major John Andre and Benedict Arnold met in the woods along the Hudson shoreline. Their act of treason was a pivotal point in the Revolutionary war. To commemorate the meeting of these two men, the HSRC will present a “Walk Through History” visiting the places in Rockland that were involved in this event.

The guided walk will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2013 and will be a 2-Part Walking Tour.

There will also be an optional buffet brunch after the walk at The ’76 House In Tappan, which costs $30.
