Details

In August 1779, the climactic battle of the Sullivan-Clinton campaign occurred here as approximately 5,000 Continental soldiers defeated the British led Iroquios and Loyalists. A granite monument erected in 1912 adorns this scenic 330-acre park commemorating General Sullivan`s victory over the Seneca and British forces. Additionally, in 1935, 180 African American men of the Civilian Conservation Corps came to Newtown Battlefield to improve the park. Their story is told in interpretive signs at the park.
