            Fraunces Tavern

This building is most famous

as the site where on December 4,

1783, George Washington gathered a

group of his officers, nine days after

the last of the British troops left

American soil. He gathered them to thank them for their

service and bid them an emotional farewell before returning home. The only first-hand account of the farewell comes from The Memoirs of Colonel Benjamin Tallmadge, which Fraunces Tavern Museum has on display. Fraunces Tavern Museum is the only Museum in New York City that allows visitors to discover the American Revolutionary past in NYC's oldest standing structure.  For more information click on the photo.
