New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site is where the Continental Army under General George Washington spent the last winter and spring of the Revolutionary War. It was here that the cease fire orders were issued by Washington ending the eight-year War of Independence on April 19, 1783. During certain times of the year, visitors will find costumed staff demonstrating musket drills, blacksmithing, military medicine, and other 18th century skills. Special events include an encampment by Revolutionary War reenactors each April, Memorial Day and Independence Day activities, and a Children's Day of fun activities remembering the 219 children that once lived here. New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site is also home to the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor.
