New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution
Honors the memory of
Polish born Brigadier General
(1746 - 1817) A Patriot of the American Revolution
Planner of the fortifications at Bemis Heights,
that contributed to the American victory on
October 17, 1777, after the Battles of Saratoga
Engineer appointed by the Continental Congress to
oversee the fortifications of West Point, 1777-1780
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.
