Monument to the Soldiers Monument to the Batteries
Postcard (circa 1905) depicting the original placement of the D.A.R. "Monument of the Soldiers of the War of the Revolution" in Fishkill, NY. Moved from its place near the burial ground, the monument now rests at the Van Wyck Homestead. Read the Monument Dedication Ceremonies, an insightful story from the 1897 event (a must for researchers). Another postcard (circa 1904) shows the "Monument to the Batteries" located about a mile south of the depot along Route 9. Placed by the Melzingah Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revoluton, the plaque is inscribed with the words: On the hills back of this stone stood three batteries guarding this pass 1776-1783.
