Historic New York

(Three miles northwest of Remsen, Oneida County)

Home and grave of Baron Frederick William von Steuben

Drillmaster of the American Revolution

          Arriving at Valley Forge in February, 1778, this German-born officer found "an army of skeletons . . . naked, starved, sick, discouraged," -and undisciplined. By day he drilled them for the victorious campaigns of that summer. By candlelight he wrote a MANUAL OF ARMS which is still the basis for the discipline of our armed forces.

          "His services were indispensable to the achievement of American independence."
