The Battle of Fort Lee

A Revolutionary War era Fort Lee is nowadays hidden among apartment skyscrapers and the George Washington Bridge of New Jersey. Despite the constant changes of the neighborhoods that surround the old fort, on November 20th every year you can view a reenactment of the "turf war" of 1776. Hundreds of reenacters: British, Hessians, and Patriots bring along their muskets, bayonets, and cannons to fight over the two-story block house that's situated in the forests of the Palisades. Ironically, no battle ever occurred at the fort, but rather the patriots retreated from the thousands of invading troops of the British on that cold November. If you need to warm up, you should get there early for the chance to try some homemade British soup.
