Virtual History Video Program: Historical Characters of the Hudson Valley


Meet some of the men and women who contributed to the history of the Hudson Valley in this costumed character short film. Makes a great "virtual field trip" for students in Grades 4 and up, too.

Historic figures include: Phrenologist Orson Fowler; recollections by friends of Wappinger Native American Tribe Sachem Daniel Nimham and Abolitionist Sojourner Truth; baseball slugger “Big” Dan Brouthers and Mary, a local Suffragette; Pieter Mesier and his wife Catherine, who gives a personal account of the Wappinger Tea Party revolt which took place at the Mesier Homestead in May 1777; and Nicholas Brower, Patriot and builder of the Mesier Homestead in Wappingers Falls, NY.
