A Walk Around Sleepy Hollow Cemetery – Overview

Continuing with posts featuring Fall colors we come to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, NY. This cemetery is near to our house in Briarcliff Manor, NY so I’ve been there many times. I often go in Winter because they reliably clear they snow and I can walk the dog there when other trails are snow covered.

However, I can’t ever recall being there in Fall.

A Visit to Mount Gulian – Baron Von Steuben

These weekly excursions focus on visits to Revolutionary War Sites, and this gentleman was our reason for visiting Mount Gulian.

In this badly faded painting we see Friedrich Wilhelm August Heinrich Ferdinand Steuben (born Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin von Steuben), a former Prussian officer who served as Inspector General and a Major General of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He taught the army the essentials of military drills, tactics, and discipline. He served as Washington’s chief of staff in the final years of the war. His “Regulations for the Order and Discipline of the Troops of the United States” served as the standard US drill manual until the war of 1812. Von Steuben made Mount Gulian his headquarters from 1783-1784.
