History
The Continental Army first occupied West Point, New York, on 27 January 1778;[6] and is the oldest continuously-operating Army post in the United States.[7] Between 1778 and 1780, the Polish engineer and military hero Tadeusz Kościuszko oversaw the construction of the garrison defenses.[8] The Great Hudson River Chain and high ground above the narrow S curve in the river enabled the Continental Army to prevent British Royal Navy ships from sailing upriver and thus dividing the Colonies.[9][10] As commander of the fortifications at West Point, Benedict Arnold committed his act of treason, attempting to sell the fort to the British.[11][12] After Arnold betrayed the patriot cause, the Army changed the name of the fortifications at West Point, New York, to Fort Clinton.[11] With the peace after the American Revolutionary War left various ordnance and military stores deposited at West Point.[13]
