An Appeal to the Congress of the United States From the Society of Old Brooklynites: For the Erection of a Monument Over the Remains of 11,500 Prisone
This passionate argument for the creation of a memorial to the thousands of prisoners who died aboard British prison ships during the Revolutionary War offers a compelling reminder of the price paid for the founding of the United States. The appeal, made by the Society of Old Brooklynites to the US Congress, reflects the ongoing struggle to honor the sacrifices of those who fought for American independence.
