NY Rules Likely

The Newburghs were organized "as early as 1856," and had "as particular rivals the Highlands, of (nearby) New Windsor." It seems likely that such games were played shortly after 1856, but a local source lists the first recorded game in June 1859, when a second Newburgh club, the Hudson Rivers, played its first game against the Highlands.
