This is a Documentary about Washington’s Headquarters and Newburgh, NY , and how Washington’s Headquarters came to be what it is today. It takes us back to the first settlers of Newburgh and what it was like here, the history of the house, and some of the events that occurred during the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries including George Washington’s time at Headquarters and the events that occurred here.
How the house become the First Publicly Owned National Historic Site and how it was almost lost to history, the visitors and celebrations that occurred here, are all an integral part of the story.
Included are tours of the inside and outside of the house and dramatic Drone Aerial Footage by Scott Snell of XfactorAerial.com. There are many images pulled from various collections and interviews with those close to the site.
We have recreated music from the 18th and 19th Century including music from Composers from Newburgh who lived during that time period. Musicians Albert Garzon, Rick Santacroce, Jr., and Jonathan Dobin created an incredible musical soundtrack of the time period.
