Duly Noted: The Battle of Brooklyn

Today is the 232nd anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn, also called the Battle of Long Island. (It's a little busy here at the office today so I won't go into detail, but I bookmarked the following a while ago.)

Further Reading:
Barnet Schecter, The Battle for New York, and
David McCullough, 1776.

Gowanus Lounge reports on a possible location of a burial ground from this battle. See post for details.
