Over the next couple of weeks we'll be discussing the lead up to and consequences of the American Revolution. New York was a hotbed of political debate and a battleground during the Revolutionary War, but little physical evidence of New York's revolutionary past remains visible today, especially when compared with Boston of Philadelphia. If you had unlimited resources, what would you do to commemorate or identify New York's Revolutionary Era history? (Here is the building that replaced Federal Hall, pictured above: Federal Hall National Memorial).

This post will be open to comments until Tuesday, March 25.
