      HONORING THE VILLAGE OF COPENHAGEN ON ITS 150TH ANNIVERSARY

                                 ______
                                 

                         HON. ELISE M. STEFANIK

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                        Friday, August 23, 2019

  Ms. STEFANIK. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor the Village of 
Copenhagen on its 150th Anniversary. I am proud to represent a district 
that is so steeped in history and I want to congratulate every resident 
of Copenhagen on this occasion.
  The Village of Copenhagen grew around the Munger's Mills on the banks 
of the Deer River starting in 1801. The Village grew up within the Town 
of Denmark and received its name in protest of the British bombardment 
of Copenhagen that year; however, the Village of Copenhagen would not 
be incorporated until 1869. Copenhagen is home to many historically 
significant sites including the Pinckney Corners Cemetery, founded in 
1810, where the bodies of veterans from the Revolutionary War and the 
War of 1812 are located.
  On behalf of New York's 21st Congressional District, I want to 
congratulate Mayor Clarke and every resident of Copenhagen on this 
historic occasion. As we look back on and celebrate the decades and 
centuries behind us, I encourage everyone to also look forward to our 
bright future ahead.
