Peace Conference, Tottenville, Staten Island, N.Y. Sept. 2009 (Loyalist reenactment 4th B. N.J. Volunteers)

An added feature this year at the 1776 Peace Conference Reenactment were actors portraying Admiral Howe, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge, seated at a dining table on the lawn of the house arguing over the details of the ill-fated peace agreement. They were ferried over in a row boat from Perth Amboy (see pictures below).
