Hosted by:

Valerie and Jim Young

Friends,

The General From America poster

You are in for a three-fold treat dedicated to our local villian, General Benedict Arnold, commander of West Point and traitor to his new country.

First, we'll drink the very same last drink that Arnold had before he fled West Point and defected to the British, right in our very town, brought to you by bartender Jim Young.

Then, our dear friends from the Philipstown Depot Theater, led by Julie Heckert, will do a reading from the play, "The General From America," which tells the story of Arnold defecting, from the perspective of Arnold and his young British wife.

Finally, you can view the latest PCHS exhibit on the The West Point Foundry, dedicated to the only large-scale archaeological dig in Putnam County.

Please join us at the museum for this event. As the nights grow longer, there is nothing better than a night of unique drinks and a salacious story among friends.
