Pageant to commemorate events of the Revolutionary War

Three actors staging a presentation of what may have been a reenactment of the story of Jane McCrea, who was killed by Indian allies of the British during the American Revolution, provoking colonists. The event was to help celebrate the sesquicentennial of the Sullivan-Clinton campaign during the Revolution, and was most likely held in either Elmira or Canajoharie.
