Flushing Remonstrance: 350th
Speaking of History, if ever there was a time to recall the
basis of one of our most cherished ideals it is now. Freedom
of Religion was one of the goals sought in the Flushing
Remonstrance, a document signed by 29 courageous souls
back in 1657. Several events are planned during the year
leading up to December 27 - the date of the actual signing.
