A focal point of the sprawling "log cabin city" at Jockey Hollow was the Grand Parade. Each day, guard details assembled here for inspection, and General Orders from Washington's headquarters were distributed. This was also the site of formal military reviews. And it was here that those guilty of serious crimes were executed and buried.

The original Grand Parade was located beyond this open ground, in the woods to the north. It was 400 yards long and 100 yards wide - six times the size of this clearing.
