We have the following items in Special Collections and University Archives:

History and guide to the Maj. Benjamin Tallmadge Trail :the capture of Ft. St. George at Mastic, N.Y. and the burning of the forge at Coram, N.Y., November 23, 1780 / by Alvin R.L. Smith.

The Manor of St. George :Mastic, town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, Long Island, N.Y. ; Dedicated as a public museum and park, Aug., 1955 / George C. Furman, Hugh S. Furman, trustees of the estate of Eugenie A. T. Smith ; Chester G. Osborne, curator of manuscripts.

The link below will provide a description of the Tallmadge Collection in Special Collections.

I suggest contacting Special Collections to see if there might be maps or additional material: 

We also have the following documentary on DVD: The spies of the Revolution: a historical documentary / by Gerard Sztabnik.

"Sztabnik’s film explores the pivotal role that Setauket’s Benjamin Tallmadge played in organizing the Culper Ring, General George Washington’s vital network of spies that aided him in his victory against the British" 11/8/07.

  1. Some of the most thorough research on Long Island History is in the issues of the Long Island Forum, a magazine publication. The archives are kept at the Patchogue-Medford Public Library and you can access there. My father Chester Osborne was the curator of Manuscripts at the Manor of St. George and I have all his files which include his own research as well as newspaper articles written about the Manor.
