2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the end of America’s bloodiest conflict, the Civil War. In commemoration of the historic events that took place, Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site has announced the dates for the first two installments of a four-part movie series titled, “Fighting for Freedom.” Each film in the series will focus on the topics of slavery and the Civil War.
The first two films shown will be “Glory” on Saturday, April 11 at 4 p.m. and “Amazing Grace” on Saturday, May 9 at 4 p.m. All films will be shown at Philipse Manor Hall, located at 29 Warburton Ave. in Yonkers, just blocks from the Yonkers train station.
Guests are encouraged to bring their own refreshments and a blanket if they prefer to watch the movies from the floor. For information or questions, please call Philipse Manor Hall’s Public Programs Coordinator, Robert Lee at (914) 965-4027 x102.
