Not far from the Cantonment which was presented in a couple of previous posts lies the location of Washington’s Last Encampment. The buildings have been skillfully reconstructed and if you are in the area you should add this part to your exploration as well.
There was a slight path to walk down before we reached the grounds where the buildings were standing.
Hello again and welcome back to the historical side of this here blog. A few days ago I shared part one of the time that I was spending on the New Windsor Cantonment not too many days ago and since I was taking so many photos had decided to portion them out into two distinct but related chapters. terms of the photos that I was getting in the trusty Panasonic Lumix so I decided to portion them out into two chapters. I’ll finish up with the artillery room and then head outside for some other interesting stuff. Here we go.
My next stop on my little exploration of some of the historical places while visiting my upstate friends would be the New Windsor Cantonment. It would be easy to explore this place as it was right next to where I just was for the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor which was discussed on THIS POST. Now it was the Cantonment’s turn and I was glad that I waited to do this one second since it was a lot more involved in terms of things to see. Once again this is mostly a visual presentation because I want you to reflect and feel as though you are also walking the museum. Personally speaking I hate when people are chattering all around me instead of whispering in such a place. Here we go.
