WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The city's Revolutionary War past will come alive during the Daughters of Liberty's Legacy's second historic trolley tour on Sunday, Oct. 18.

The tour will focus on a number of sites at which several key events of the American Revolution took place, organizers said.

Among the more popular spots are the old courthouse, where organizers said the Declaration of Independence was read allowed for the first time in 1776; the site of the Battle of White Plains; Miller House, where George Washington stopped the British advance northward; Miller Hill; Horton's Grist Mill and a number of period homes that remain.

"The first trolley tour we did in June was so much fun that people have been asking for another one," said Debra Palazzo, the group's co-founder.

The tour group will be accompanied by Mrs. Ann Miller, a colonial re-enactor who will provide detailed descriptions of life during the period. Also included is a private viewing of the Jacob Purdy House by the White Plains Historical Society.

The event is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Oct. 18. Seating on the trolley is limited. A suggested donation of $50 is asked of anyong wishing to attend.
