    Part of the rich Revolutionary War history in Newburgh, combine a trip here with a trip to Washington's HQ and Knotts homestead for an enjoyable teaching experience for your kids or visitors. You can really appreciate the hardship faced by soldiers in the winter. If you have time, visit the nearby Purple Heart Museum.
