“All of these revolutionary war patriots are buried in this graveyard in Kingston, NY. I took a photo at six of the graves!“All of these revolutionary war Patriots are buried in this graveyard in Kingston, New York. I took a photo at six of the graves. I had a very American 4th of July! Visited Ft. Montgomery, New York on the Hudson River & had a great costumed interpreter & also saw a six pound cannon firing & a musket firing. Then we traveled to Von Stuben’s headquarters. He whipped the Continental Army into shape! By the way, the musket weighs about 20 pounds!! Can’t imagine marching with it or running with it!”

On July 15 Karen said: “Early morning walk in Mystic, CT & came upon this tiny graveyard with lots of American Revolutionary War veterans! Many of the grave markers were legible!”
