The Storming of Stony Point (Photos)

More than 350 Revolutionary War re-enactors from 16 states and Canada descended on the Stony Point battlefield on July 13 and 14 to commemorate the July 16, 1779, taking of the garrison from the British by colonial troops armed only with bayonets. The charge, led by Gen. “Mad” Anthony Wayne, ended British control of the Hudson. The re-enactment is held only once every five years.
