On November 11, from 4 to 6 p.m., the public is invited to visit the Edmonston House, Revolutionary War headquarters of the arrogant General, Horatio Gates. To Gates’ way of thinking, the Edmonston House was far less than he expected for his winter quarters of 1782 to 1783, based upon his quote to General Washington, “Your Excellency’s Dog kennel at Mount Vernon, is as good a quarter as that I am now in.”
Come see for yourself if he was accurate or truly arrogant, and meet the General Gates reenactor during this cooperative program of the National Temple Hill Association and the New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site. Admission is free.
The Edmonston House is located at 1042 Route 94 in New Windsor. For more information, please call 845-561-1765, ext. 22.
