On this spot
the 23rd day of September 1780 the spy
Major John Andr?
Adjutant General of the British Army
was captured by
John Paulding, David Williams
and Isaac Van Wart,
all natives of this county.
History has told the rest.

The people of Westchester County have erected this monument as well to commemorate a great event as to testify their high estimation of that integrity and patriotism which, rejecting every temptation rescued the United States from most imminent peril by baffling the arts of a spy and the plots of a traitor.
Dedicated October 7th 1853

This plaque was placed here under the auspices of the Bicentennial Celebration Committee, to preserve for posterity the text of the original inscription carved in stone.
