26 Golesburg Reoister-Maik Golesbura, III. Wednesday, July 3. 1963 Site Being Restored Where Washington Took Firm Stand By FREDERICK M. WTNSII1P MEW WINDSOR, N.Y, (DPI)— American Independence was declared in Philadelphia on July 4, 17?6, but it was in this Continental Army encampment—now un der restoration—that Gen. George Washington stood fast against making the new nation a monarchy. Washington and the bulk of his army camped at the New Windsor cantonment* in the Hudson Highlands near West Point, for eight months in 1782-83 while the Treaty of Paris was being written and the British continued to occupy New York. Cornwallis had surrendered in 1781 and Washington's men were chafing to get, back to their farms and business NOW IN Galesburg A Gates Factory Town GATES RUBBER COMPANY HAS AUTHORIZED A SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER Factory Demonstrator on the Low Profile HylonTire that Gives Average Driver 5,000 to 8,000 Bonus Miles!

DICK JOHNSON TIRE & BATTERY es, but not without some pay in their pockets. Dissatisfaction with the near- bankrupt Continental Congress, sitting in Philadelphia, was rampant, especially among Washing ton's officers. They complained of pay arrears, unsettled food and clothing accounts and failure of the Congress to grant them prom ised life pensions at half pay This led to the suggestion that Washington take over by assuming the crown with the aid of his army. Faced With Rebellion Washington brushed aside the suggestion, expressed in a letter from Col. Lewis Nicola, with annoyance and scorn, but soon he was faced with a more serious rebellion against the Congress led by Maj. John Armstrong. The major circulated anonymous broadsides at the cantonment, urging the officers to openly defy Congress. Washington countered by calling a grievance meeting on March 15, 1783. At the meeting, the father of his country shamed the rebels by pleading for the same loyalty and patience with their government that he had given his officers during the dark days of the Revolution. Washington vowed the Congress would treat its army officers justly, and the officers backed him by adopting a resolu tion affirming their confidence in the government and their disdain of Armstrong's "infamous propositions." The huge log building in which this historic meeting took place, the Temple of Virtue, stands again on its hilltop site. The ori ginal disappeared long ago, but replica has been painstakingly built by the National Temple Hill Association, Inc.,' and it will be rededicated as a museum later this year. Owns Many Buildings The association also owns the only surviving structure of the 700-building cantonment, the officer's hut, and plans.eventually to reconstruct soldiers' huts, stables, blacksmith's and armorer's shops a prison, print shop, stockade and guardhouse as donations permit. The Hasbrouck House, Washington's headquarters in neighboring Newburgh, N.Y., still stands and is owned by the state. The Continental Army broke camp June 13, 1783, but Washington remained in the Hudson Valley with a small body of men until the British evacuated Manhattan in November and he could make a triumphant entry into the city. It was at Hasbrouck House that Washington established the Order of Merit, now known as the Purple Heart, in 1782. One of the two original Purple Hearts—that given Sgt. Elijah Churchill for meritorious action—is owned by the association and is displayed at the temple. It was also at the temple that the Society of the Cincinnati was formed by Washington's officers in 1783 with Washington as first president.
