As we look at back on 2015 and the many accomplishments our group has achieved, one event stands alone amoungst the rest. In 2014, the National Park Service awarded our group a generous American Battlefield Protection Program preservation grant to consolidate past studies and archaeological findings of the Fishkill Supply Depot into one, all-inclusive report. On Sunday, October 25th Hunter Research, Inc. presented "Fishkill - Military Supply Hub of the Revolutionary War: A Historical and Archaeological Overview." Over 70 people came to the Hyatt-House Fishkill and we graciously thank them all for making this one of our biggest events to date. Below is a video of the full presentation. Huzzah!
