Back of Marker:
The Continental Army

Under the command of General George Washington the Continental Army survived the Battle of Long Island, to carry the War through Manhattan and across Westchester to the stand off at White Plains.

Thwarting the British Plan to capture and to destroy the Army, repeatedly averting military disaster, underfed and ill-equipped, the Americans would live to fight another day?

Surprising and capturing the Hessians at Trenton, and again at Bennington. Defeating a British Army at Saratoga. After years of struggle, joined by our French Allies, the Army gained a resounding victory at Yorktown, Virginia.

White Plains was a prelude to Triumph and Independence.
