November 20th, 1776

British Lieutenant General Charles Lord Cornwallis and five thousand of his troops crossed the Hudson River and made their way to Fort Lee from Huyler's Landing Road on November 20th, 1776. General Nathanael Greene, warned of the invasion by a vigilant officer posted north of the post, led the evacuation of Fort Lee as three thousand soldiers and officers abandoned the fortifications of the Palisades and headed west on Fort Lee Road (present day Main Street) en route to escape at the New Bridge over the Hackensack River.
