50 BoweryOn November 25, 1783, as the British withdrew from Manhattan, General Washington and his troops marched across the still rural island and down the Bowery. Stopping at the Bull's Head Tavern to rest, they were met by throngs of jubilant citizens and raised their glasses before marching further south into the city, to celebrate what became known as Evacuation Day, the end of the Revolutionary War.
