for his vast knowledge of Bergen County history . He has appeared as an expert on many TV shows including:
History Detectives (PBS) and Who Do You Think You Are?(CBC)
His presentations are peppered with intellect, wit and unusual facts.
Bergen County was a hotbed of activities during the Revolutionary War.
Neighbors couldn’t trust neighbors. The British pillaged and plundered local farms for food, leaving
Pascack people to live on the brink of starvation. Mr. Braisted promises to share some “little known facts” about Bergen County’s American Revolution with us.
Copies of his books will be available for purchase that day.
