EVACUATION DAY ILLUMINATION

NOVEMBER 25, 2008

The last British troops in New York City departed on November 25, 1783, firing one last cannonball in defiance at a taunting crowd at Staten Island. 225 years later, the anniversary of that day was marked by signal fires at eleven mountaintops and historic sites in New Jersey and New York, including several sites along the Hudson River. This event was organized by several groups including Crossroads of the American Revolution Association, Palisades Parks Conservancy, the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, Scenic Hudson, and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Deke Hazirjian's company New York City Lites placed xenon spotlights at each location.
