Come to Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site during the Path Through History Weekends for two glimpses of what occurred during our country’s Revolutionary War.

On Saturday, June 7th, a presentation entitled, Receiving the French: The Role of the French in the American Revolution, will explain why the French gave the Americans firearms, clothes, and soldiers to help in their war against Great Britain. Excerpts from a French Major General’s diary explores the motives and involvement of France, the impressions of their soldiers, and how they assisted the Continental Army to victory over the British.

The Path Through History Program showcases the Empire State’s rich history and cultural heritage. Washington’s Headquarters is a New York State gem in its crown of historic landmarks. Come to these presentations, take a tour of the historic Headquarters used by General and Mrs. Washington during the last months of the Revolutionary War, and also visit the multi-award winning exhibit “Unpacked & Rediscovered: Selections from Washington’s Headquarters’ Collection.”
