Newburgh, New York

Washington Headquarters

Postmarked 1906(?)

Washington's headquarters in Newburgh, New York, used during the last sixteen months of the Revolutionary War, is still open for visitor tours who want to see the grounds and view the historic artifacts on display. According to the Palisades Park Conservancy, the site near the Hudson River was purchased by New York state in 1850 and was the first land purchased in the United States for historic conservation.
