    • The Setting… The British headquarters was in New York City, and its army had outposts along what is now the Bronx/Westchester border.  The Bronx was then a part of the County of Westchester.  The American lines, north of the Croton River, stretched from Peekskill to Connecticut and down to Long Island Sound. Time and again during those seven long years, the inhabitants of Westchester were victims of raids, pillage and plunder by the armies and outlaw bands of British and Americans alike.  No other area of the thirteen states was subjected to the hardships of the American Revolutionary War for so long a period of time.
