Today’s excursion took us to General George Washington’s Headquarters (his last wartime HQ) in the Hasbrouk House in Newburgh, NY. He stayed there from April 1782 until August 1783 and it was here that he issued an order for the “cessation of hostilities”, and gave his Proclamation of Peace, which formally ended the fighting of the Revolutionary War. We also visited the museum and toured the interior of the house, but unfortunately photography was forbidden in both locations.
