Pulaski Park is one of two parklands in New York City (the other is in the Brooklyn) that honors Casimir Pulaski (1748-1779), a Polish patriot and military commander during the American Revolutionary War. Pulaski was born to a noble family in the present-day region of Podolia, Poland. In 1768, the 20 year old Pulaski joined with his father to form the Confederation of Bar, a group of Polish nobles dedicated to opposing Russian influence in Poland. In an unsuccessful rebellion against the Russian-dominated King of Poland, Stanislaus II (1764-1795), Pulaski gained international military fame. After the Confederation was suppressed by Russian troops in 1772, Pulaski escaped first to Prussia, in present northwest Germany, and then to France.
