    237th Anniversary of Cease Fire and Liberation.

    On 14 December, 1782, the besieged British garrison on the Charlestown peninsula requested a cease fire to march out of the city in retreat to their ships in the harbor.The last of the organized British forces in America south of New York City were escorted to their evacuation ships by General Anthony Wayne’s Continental Regiment of mounted dragoons.  Later in the day the Southern Continental Army led a liberation parade into the city, beginning a tradition of celebration of this historic event that we continue to this day.

    OVTA will participate in the historic event.
