"King's Bridge and the heights adjacent, of the utmost importance to the communication between New York and the mainland, & to the security of the Hudson, were reconnoitered by Washington on horseback about June 16, 1776. By direction of the Commander-in-Chief, breast works were thrown up for the defense of the bridge, and an advanced work (subsequently called Fort Independence) was built beyond it, on the hill near this spot commanding Spyt Den Deivel Creek."
