"In this beautiful place, the fairest among the fair and lovely Highlands of the North River, shut in by deep green heights and ruined forts, and looking down upon the distant town of Newburgh along a glittering path of sunlit water, with here and there a skiff whose white sail often bends on some new tack as sudden flaws of wind come down upon her from the gullies in the hills: hemmed in, besides, all around with memories of Washington and events of the Revolutionary War: is the Military School of America."--DICKENS.
