1700's - 1840's

Somewhere below this site, on a wooded ledge twenty feet above the Hudson River, lay the dueling grounds. Among the many known and unknown duelists who fought here were Governor of New York, DeWitt Clinton (1769-1828), Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804), Vice-President Aaron Burr (1756-1836) and U.S. Navy Commodore Oliver Perry (1785-1819). All came to Weehawken to defend their honor, according to the custom of the day.

Dedicated on July 11, 2004, the 200th Anniversary of the Hamilton-Burr Duel.
