Did You Know?
In the American Revolution, a
number of guerilla bands operated in Westchester County, New York,
which marked the dividing line between the British and American
forces. These groups were made up of local farmhands who would
ambush convoys and carry out raids on both sides. There were two
separate groups: the "skinners" fought for the pro-independence
side; the "cowboys" supported the British.
