St. Paul’s Trip

St. Paul’s Church was built in 1765. The church was built the way it was because it needed to be able to fit a lot of people and it needed to be strong. The church was used as a hospital in the American Revolution. A battle, called the Battle of Pell’s Point happened near it. The Battle of Pell’s Point was a battle so the British could not get to Manhattan and so the British could not trap Washington’s men and to delay the British. In the Battle of Pell’s Point, The American Army hid behind stone walls and when the British came they fired. Overall, I really enjoyed going there.
