"The American Revolution on Long Island"

Meet author Dr. Joanne S. Grasso as she explores the story of an island at war.

The American Revolution sharply divided families and towns on Long Island. Washington's defeat at the Battle of Long Island in August 1776 started seven years of British occupation. Learn all about the events that help shape our history.

Dr. Grasso is an adjunct assistant professor of history and political science, specializing as an Americanist in the American Revolution, among other areas. She teaches at area Long Island colleges and is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Society for Historians of the Early American Republic and the American Revolution Round Table in New York City. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
