Fort Stanwix Flag Ceremony
The Fort Stanwix Flag Ceremony The Siege Ends takes place on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, at 3:oopm at the Fort Stanwix National monument.
The ceremony commemorates and remembers the important turning point when the British and their allies abandoned their attack on Fort Schuyler/Stanwix.
After three long weeks, the British and their allies abandoned their attack on Fort Schuyler/Stanwix, leaving the American forces within as the victors. However, even with the immediate threat removed, the Continental Army throughout New York was still under British threat. Programs throughout the day will focus on what happened as the British retreated, but didn't surrender.
