Preservation: Constitution Island, NY

Located near West Point, this was the site of a fortification guarding the Hudson River. Throughout the war, Continental troops camped here. This was also the site of the Great Chain that stretched across the river to deny access to British warships. The Constitution Island Association works with the US Military Academy at West Point to preserve the site. The groups are working to restore the eighteenth century Warren House, located on the property. For updates visit:
