General George Washington established his headquarters in this area at the junction of the American encampments to the east and the French encampments to the north.

Here he set up two tents: a large one for meeting with his staff and for dining, and a smaller one for his private office and sleeping quarters. The house nearby may have served as additional shelter, while the spring over the brow of the hill to the right offered fresh water.

Washington is represented with other members of his staff, planning the attack on British Redoubts Nos. 9 and 10.
