Brooklyn Bridge Walk Into Freedom


We will celebrate Independence Day the afternoon before by walking across the Brooklyn Bridge spanning iconic sites associated with our struggle for freedom from England. On the Manhattan side, we will visit City Hall Park, the site of the Common, where George Washington had the Declaration of Independence read for the firs to inspire the troops; view the statue of Nathan Hale, American spy executed by the British; and St. Paul’s Chapel, where President George Washington was a congregant. As we stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge, we will view the Statue of Liberty, still the beacon of liberty and Ellis Island that once welcomed the huddled masses. On the Brooklyn Side, we will view the location where the Battle of Brooklyn (or Long Island) took place, General George Washington’s greatest defeat, and end at Plymouth Church where its Reverend Henry Ward Beecher auctioned off a black slave into freedom.
