November 20th, 1776

New Jersey is known as the Crossroads of the American Revolution and this Fort Lee crossroad on Main Street represents one of the most important sites in the United States. Here, on present day Main Street, Major General Nathanael Greene led the garrison of Fort Lee west along this retreat route from the fortifications on the bluffs of the Palisades and their nearby encampment to escape British capture on the morning of November 20th, 1776.
