Memorial Day Walking Tour

So, this is a little bit late notice, but on Monday, May 26, at 12:30pm, James will lead a jaunt around Lower Manhattan looking for remnants of the many wars in which New York and New Yorkers have played a prominent role. Last year, we focused solely on Alexander Hamilton and the American Revolution; this year, we’ll talk about everything from the First Anglo-Dutch War through the war in Afghanistan that’s still going on today. Popular sites like Bowling Green and Castle Clinton are on the itinerary, as well as more obscure sites. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
When: Monday, May 26, at 12:30pm for about 2 hours
Where: The meeting location will be emailed to you when you reserve
Cost: $20 per person or reserve an advance copy of Footprints in New York and pay just $30 for the tour and book combined. (The book sells for $20 at local bookstores, so this is a great deal!)
How to reserve: Email footprintsinnewyork@gmail.com with your name, # of people in your party, and if you want to reserve any books at the special price.
Hope to see you Monday -- and if you can’t come then, we are give a free talk at The National Arts Club on Tuesday, May 27, at 8pm. Details at www.footprintsinnewyork.com/events.html
