The George Washington and Mary Philipse Tour February 13, 20, & 27 ~Yonkers, NY~

Once written off and forgotten to history, Calvi’s research shined a light on how much of a role Yonkers, the Philipse family and the daughter of a prominent Loyalist had on pre-Revolutionary War America, including impacting Washington’s heart.
