Revolutionary War Site Opens Near West Point

October 06, 2002|Jane Engle

Revolutionary War buffs have a new place to visit, thanks to the Fort Montgomery State Historic Site, which opens today on the bluffs above the Hudson River four miles south of the West Point military academy. The 14-acre area has an interpretive trail linking the foundations of fortifications involved in a 1777 battle in which British forces overwhelmed the American defenders, killing 70 Americans. It is open daily through October and then will reopen April 15. Admission is free. (845) 786-2701, www.nysparks.com (expected to be posted soon) or www.hudsonvalleyheritagearea.com.
