The Battle of Brooklyn started on August 26, 1776, with the British preparing to attack the American forces the next day. The Americans main defensive line ran from (today’s) Gowanus Canal to Wallabout Bay, with both ends defined by salt marshes. Near dawn on August 27, fighting began near Bedford village, as well as in today’s Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery. Within two days the American forces were in disorder and roughly 9500 troops trapped on Brooklyn Heights. Join us today at 2 p.m. for Historic Brooklyn Heights, meeting on the sweeping steps of Brooklyn Borough Hall and/or tomorrow’s walks - Brooklyn Bridge & Heights at 11 a.m.; Revolutionary New York at 1 p.m. to learn about New York City during the American Revolution.

A lovely map showing some of the troop positions during the Battle of Brooklyn, 1776. On July 2nd, an initial force of 10,000 British soldiers landed on #StatenIsland . By August, there were over 32,000 soldiers there, along with 25 war ships and 400 smaller vessels; eyewitnesses remarked that it was as if all of London were afloat. On August 22nd, the British began crossing the Narrows, landing at Denyse's Ferry (near what is now #FortHamilton ). The Americans had dug in along the Heights of Guan, a series of hills stretching from #BayRidge across #LongIsland that had four main passes through the rocky terrain. Three of these were heavily defended. On the evening of August 26th, 10,000 British regulars embarked on a night march through the #Jamaica Pass, encountering little resistance. Early in the morning of the 27th, a skirmish broke out on the right of the American line. 5,000 Hessians launched an attack through the Flatbush Pass (in what is now #ProspectPark ), and the soldiers who had come through the Jamaica Pass wound up behind the Americans, trapping them. The soldiers who were left started to fall back and cross the #Gowanus creek. A group of 400 Marylanders under Lord Stirling were stationed near the Vechte-Cortelyou house to cover the retreat. All but 10 of the men were killed, wounded, or captured, but their valiant actions allowed the rest of the Americans to reach safety in #BrooklynHeights . The British did not attack the Heights, which was guarded by a chain of fortifications. Washington wanted to hold the ground there, and waited two days to act. However, when he called a council of #war , his generals favored a withdrawal to #Manhattan . The evacuation was carried out under the darkness of night, with fires left burning to fool the British sentries. As morning neared, there were still soldiers left in Brooklyn, but a dense fog rolled in, allowing them to escape across the East River. The #BattleofBrooklyn was the largest single engagement of the #AmericanRevolution , with the Americans suffering an estimated 1,200 casualties #NYC #Brooklyn #BattleofBrooklyn #military #battlemap #map #1776 #onthisday #history #Repost @discovering_nyc (@get_repost )

Marlin 336RC in .30-30 Winchester made in 1953 A very reliable and smooth lever action rifle, the Model 336 Is evolution of the Model 1893 and 36 rifles, the Model 336 is easily distinguished from its predecessors by its open ejection port machined into the side of the receiver. Design improvements include a stronger and simpler round-profile chrome-plated breech bolt, a redesigned cartridge carrier, an improved extractor, and coil-type main and trigger springs in place of the flat springs used in earlier Marlin rifles. Like its predecessors, the receiver and all major working parts of the Model 336 are constructed of steel forgings. With its solid, flat top receiver and side ejection of fired cartridges, the Marlin 336 is prime candidate for use with a rifle scope, this made it have a key advantage over the top-ejecting Winchester 1894. In 1956, Marlin also incorporated its proprietary Micro-Groove rifling system into the Model 336 and other centerfire Marlin rifles. This rifling system, which used an increased number of relatively shallow rifling grooves, cut down production time and significantly extended the service life of machine tooling. According to Marlin, the Micro-Groove system provides very uniform bore dimensions and a very smooth bore finish designed to improve accuracy, prevent gas leakage, and reduce bore fouling. The 336 is one of the most popular hunting rifles used in America and more deer have been taken with the .30-30 than any other caliber.
