George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin were among the attendees at Revolution on the Hudson, a living history experience held at Pierson Park on the afternoon of Saturday, Oct. 22.

The five-hour event was produced by Revolutionary Westchester 250, a nonprofit founded by Irvington resident Connie Kehoe to build awareness about Westchester’s Revolutionary War history in preparation for the 250th anniversary, in 2026, of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. During the event, State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins announced that Kehoe had been appointed to the New York State 250th Commemoration Commission.
