I can revisit the American Revolution anywhere, far away, at home, or nearby. Here in Sleepy Hollow, formerly known as North Tarrytown, I come across a reminder. An 1894 stone in the graveyard of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. reads: “1776[–]1783 In memory of the officers and soldiers of the revolution who by their valor sustained the cause of liberty and independence on these historic fields.”

This month, the revolution is everywhere. Its reminders are everywhere. Remember.
