Fort Montgomery: Fishkill - The Supply Depot at the Crossroads of the Revolution

  • Fort Montgomery State Park 690 Rte. 9W Fort Montomgery, NY (map)

Declared as "the last of the important Revolutionary War sites yet to be properly explored," the Fishkill Supply Depot remains so today: a one-of-a-kind site of national importance that has never gotten its due. Located in Fishkill, New York, the Depot was a key strategic center of the American Revolution. Known as the "Military nerve center of the Continental army," the Depot was one of three major encampments along with Morristown and Valley Forge. Hallowed history happened here - hundreds of soldiers who fought to found our nation died and were buried in unmarked graves. In this presentation by Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot President Lance Ashworth and researcher Fred Roe, discover the history of the depot and learn about the current fight to preserve this unique site from development.
