Celebrate Greater Western New York’s Birthday on December 16th!

More and more people are discovering the Greater Western New York Region wasn’t originally part of New York State but was annexed several years after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War. And a good thing, too! The British attempt to retake America from Canada in the War of 1812 was stymied by the buffer zone created by Western New York. What led to the original confusion surrounding which state really owned the Greater Western New York Region? Read all about it – and why December 16th is our region’s birthday – in this week’s Carosa CommentaryCelebrate Greater Western New York’s Birthday on December 16th!” which is excerpted from a chapter in the book 50 Hidden Gems of Greater Western New York.
