The US Military Academy at West Point is America's oldest military school and continuously occupied military post. General Washington called its position the "key to America" during the Revolutionary War. In 1778, engineers for the Continental Army designed fortifications to stop British ships attempting to sail upriver, and an iron chain was stretched across the Hudson. Visitors see historic fortifications and the oldest, largest public collection of military artifacts in the western hemisphere.
