New NY History article?

I’ve been meaning for a while to write an article about the Battle of Stony Point, which took place July 15-16, 1779. I live about 5 miles from the battlefield site and I am there all the time (lots of pokestops and two gyms). i was hoping to get it up before the anniversary, but that ship has sailed.

Fine, whatever. It gives me time to go deeper detail.

Yes, I know that it’s not NYC history (Stony Point is in what’s now the city suburbs, as am I) but it’s nearby, a cool story, and I saw that they tried to recreate it on Turn: Washington’s Spies and got some details wrong for the sake of the show.
