Participants will learn about New York's role in the war, see the graves of war heroes, and watch the sun rise from Trinity Church.

Tickets cost $20 ($15 for museum members) and must be purchased in advance.

Once tickets have been purchased, guests will be emailed a confirmation receipt and starting location for the tour.
