Inscription. Estate of General Horatio Gates (1728-1806) • Victor of the Battle of Saratoga 1777

Major General Tadeusz Kościuszko (1746-1817)

Colonel of Engineers in the Continental Army (1776-1784) - designer of the fortifications at West Point - veteran of the Northern and the Southern campaigns - the patriot of two continents stayed here 10-29 September 1797 - to visit his former commander - to renew friendships forged in the struggle for American liberty - & to mourn the passing of comrades-in-arms. He received here the sympathy & well-wishes of New Yorkers for his daring & gallantry in leading the Polish Insurrection of 1794 against overwhelming invading forces.

He is as pure a son of liberty as I have ever known, and of that liberty which is to go to all, and not to the few and rich alone.
—Thomas Jefferson to Gates 1798
