“Your Excellency’s Dog kennel at Mount Vernon is as good a Quarter as that I am now in” at Edmonston House. Meet Saratoga victor and New Windsor Cantonment commander Major General Horatio Gates who was not very happy to be assigned this house for the winter of 1782-83.
The cantonment site, the last encampment of General George Washington’s Continental Army, is now a New York State Park. The NTHA now owns and maintains the Historic Edmonston House and manages the Last Encampment, a Town of New Windsor park and part of the original cantonment.
