White Plains is a city of contrasts. It is a suburb with an urban vibe. It has old buildings and it has new ones. It is a modern city with a revolutionary past. It was in here in White Plains where New York became a state and then the setting for a standoff between the rebels of the American Continental Army and the British Empire. Whether it was the weather or just bad luck on the part of the British, the Americans came away from White Plains with their hopes for independence still very much alive. With the dawn of the 20th century, the city would evolve into the commercial and government center that one finds in the 21st century. This book explores the remnants of White Plains' past that predate 1940.
