wp-battle-1Photos by Howard Waldman – The Jacob Purdy House at 60 Park Ave. in White Plains and the historic White Plains Battle Park were the site of a Revolutionary War reenactment of the Battle of White Plains, Sunday, said to have been a major event in turning the outcome of the war away from the British. The event, sponsored by the White Plains Historical Society, honored those Patriots who fought in the Battle. The day featured a Revolutionary War encampment and Colonial craft re-enactors. There was a flag-raising ceremony, musket fire and refreshments. It was a fun day for the young and old alike.wp-battle-2wp-battle-3wp-battle-4
