"Substitutes, Servants and Soldiers: The Black Presence at New Windsor Cantonment"
Saturday, February 19, 2022 02:00 PM
Clermont State Historic Site
During the winter of 1782-1783, 7,500 Continental Army soldiers established a temporary camp at New Windsor, New York. Among them were countless numbers of soldiers of African descent, who joined of their own free will, or as substitutes for people who claimed ownership of them. Using documentary evidence, we'll meet some of these remarkable soldiers and learn about their contributions at what would be the last encampment of the American Revolutionary War. 

Speaker's Biography: Matthew Thorenz is Local History Librarian, and Head of Reference and Adult Services at the Moffat Library of Washingtonville. In addition to his work as a librarian and archivist, he is also an independent historian, who worked as a museum educator at New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site for 7 years, when he conducted this research. He has published several articles on the American Revolution, and World War One in the Hudson Valley in the Hudson River Valley Review Journal and in June 2020 published his first book Images of America: Blooming Grove & Washingtonville for Arcadia Publishing. 

Masks are required to attend this event. Space is limited. Visitors must register in advance at https://www.friendsofclermont.org/events
