When the Revolutionary war broke out and New York City fell, the forces of the king of Great Britain developed a network of forts along the length of Long Island to defend the New York area. Author David M. Griffin has deeply researched these lost forts for his book on the subject, uncovering their lost history which is full of harrowing stories. He has included chapters on Southampton’s British fort as well as chapters on forts in Hampton Bays and Sag Harbor.
