“Drums Along the Mohawk” Overnight Motorcoach Excursion

The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us on an Overnight Excursion
“Drums Along the Mohawk”

Saturday, August 9 – Sunday August 10, 2014
Motorcoach departs from the West Nyack Commuter Parking Lot 8/9/14 at 7:30 am; 
Returns on 8/10/14 at 6:00 pm.

Join us on our overnight upstate New York bus tour and travel back in time to the year 1777 and our American Revolution! Our luxury coach, equipped with lavatory, microphone, and DVD, will take us to Albany and west to the Mohawk Valley. With our on-board guide for the two days, we will see approximately 12 eighteenth century sites, and have guided tours at approximately 6 of them. A Saturday highlight will be the 5:00 pm performance of "Drums Along the Mohawk Outdoor Drama” by Walter D. Edmonds. This vivid adaptation of the beloved historical novel tells the story of a newlywed couple thrust into the brutal conflict of the American Revolution during 1777 (please pack a folding lawn chair; as chairs are NOT provided at the performance).

Tour stops have been hand-picked to enhance your "Drums Along the Mohawk" experience: Benedict Arnold began his rescue of the endangered Mohawk Valley residents at the Van Schaick Mansion; we’ll also tour the elegant Georgian style mansion home of the hero of the drama, General Nicholas Herkimer (a complete listing of tour sights and stops will be posted on the HSRC website in May).

This trip is approved by the e4™ travel brand: it will Entertain, be Educational, Environmentally appropriate, and will include light walking Exercise. This is an "attraction dense" trip; guests will bring their own bag lunch to eat Saturday during the hour plus drive between Albany and Little Falls. The tour is expected to sell out quickly; so don't delay! Limited to 28-40 participants, dependent on room occupancy. Register as single or double occupancy.

Single Occupancy $279 Per Person; Double Occupancy $244 Per Person
