Revolutionary War Heritage Trail

British Forces Burn Kingston
Responsible for the security of Kingston, when the British burned the Village on October 16, 1777 - General Clinton wrote to General Gates that of the promised 3000 men, only 400 were sent. He concluded this letter with "Kingston hath been destroy'd merely because I have been so deceiv'd in my expectations of assistance". Many of the patriots buried in the Old Dutch Church Ancient Burial Grounds served under Brigadier General George Clinton.

?Saving' Gen. Washington's Continental Army
In 1778, General Washington wrote to General Clinton, fearful the famine at Valley Forge would create mutiny and desertion. Clinton sent 100 head of cattle as well as hundreds of barrels of grain and pork. Washington's response was "Your assistance hast prevented many souls from starvation . . . It has been one of the forgotten incidents of the Revolution that with the assistance of Old Ulster, your native County, you more than one time saved my army in our darkest hours of this long struggle."

Patriot's Homes
When the British burned Kingston, these Patriot's homes were destroyed. Restored after the War, only Col. Hasbrouck's house remains in 2004.

Colonel Abraham Hasbrouck House (Green Street, Kingston)
In his Diary, Col. Hasbrouck wrote of his extensive personal losses, the losses of his friends and neighbors, his Church and the Country-House on October 16, 1777. He completed this poignant entry with, "Thanks be to God for His great goodness, I, my wife and children escaped and unhurt out of the enemy's hands."

Colonel Abraham B. Bancker House (North Front Street near Crown Street, Kingston)
