Social New York Under the Georges, 1714-1776


It's the 18th century. Where do I go to procure cockfighting supplies? When is the next bull-baiting? How do I join the Macaroni Club? What exactly is "the English love of horseflesh?" All these questions and hundreds more can be answered in this informative text, which can provide the researcher with missing details about customs, habits and ways of life in early New York. Compiled and organized by the author from a good many sources, such as letters & diaries of descendants; wills; inventories; and colonial newspapers.
