After the museum village, and a quick stop for lunch, we visited the New Windsor Cantonment, where George Washington spent a good part of the Revolutionary War. Most of these buildings were rebuilt from old military plans dating back to the war, but also on the grounds is the structure believed to be the only standing building from a Revolutionary War encampment. Pretty neat, I thought. And there’s also a monument built in honor of Washington long after the war ended. Throw in some costumed re-enactors, including a blacksmith and a musket firing, and you have a glimpse into our nation’s history. Hope you’re enjoying the look back 18th century America. It seemed a fitting thing to do on our nation’s birthday.
Where are you off to this summer?
