Revolutionary War Heritage TrailNear here stood the Red Lion Inn, marking the junction of three country roads: Martense Lane, which followed what is now the southern edge of the Green-Wood Cemetery; the Narrows Road, which came up the shore of New York Bay from Denyse's Ferry; and the Gowanus Road, which led back up to Brooklyn Heights. On August 27, 1776, the Battle of Brooklyn began when a British column under General James Grant attacked American pickets defending the Red Lion.
