American Revolution in Hudson Heights

The annual re-enactment of the Battle of Fort Washington will take place on Sunday, November 13, in Fort Tryon Park.  This re-enactment commemorates the Continental Army's last stand against the British in northern Manhattan.  For a concise history of the 1776 battle, check out this 2005 blog post from Washington Heights U.S.  

While the historic location of the Continental Army's fort, Bennett Park, is under construction, the renovation is intended to improve the depiction and information about the historic site.
