This Lunchtime Lecture looks at the ways New Yorkers celebrated the 4th of July so soon after winning Independence. What kinds of orations, drinks, toasts, foods and music surrounded their celebrations? Did people really celebrate by reading aloud The Declaration of Independence? In 1826, fifty years after separating from Britain, how did New Yorkers celebrate differently from their countrymen in other parts of the United States? Free with admission.
