In November, 218 years ago, the site Englewood cliffs now occupies was the scene of a heroic encounter that changed the course of our nation. An unknown farmer riding from the North over our cliffs warned General Washington’s men, camped on the crest of the Palisades at Fort Lee, that the British were coming. The early warning allowed Washington to make his successful strategic retreat and thus avoid confronting the numerically superior British force. General Washington’s small group of brave but ill-equipped and trained patriots would surely have been defeated. Had General Washington been captured as planned by British general Cornwallis, it is conceivable that the Revolution War would have been lost.
