The War for American Independence
From October 28, 1776 until the British withdrawal on November 4, 1776 the Continental Army commanded by General George Washington engaged and held off the splendidly appointed British forces of General William Howe. This monument marking the eastern limit of the Patriot defenses during the Battle of White Plains is reverently erected in continuing memory of the valor and courage of our Forefathers, who untrained and ill equipped, remained steadfast until the enemy retired. The high ground to the south of this spot was occupied by the New York Regiment of Colonel William Malcolm. The hill to the north was occupied by the regiments under Major General William Heath. On October 28, and again on November 1, attempted enemy attacks upon these positions were turned back.
