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.
