On November 25, 1783 the British occupying garrison evacuated New York City at the and General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, marched his troops into Lower Manhattan, thereby liberating New York City from British occupation.  Evacuation Day was a major New York City Holiday from 1783 until 1916 when it was discontinued during the first World War.  It was revived in 2014 when the LMHA, after the Sons of the Revolution’s Evacuation Day Dinner, decided to reinstitute the flag raising on the day that it was first raised.
