New Windsor

New Windsor

      town (township), Orange county, southeastern New York, U.S., on the Hudson River, immediately south of Newburgh. The old village, New Windsor Center (named for Windsor, England), was laid out in 1749, and the town was established in 1763. The town also includes the hamlets of Vails Gate, Little Britain, and Rock Tavern. George Clinton (Clinton, George), the first governor of New York, and his nephew DeWitt Clinton (Clinton, DeWitt) were born in Little Britain. The New Windsor Cantonment, the winter camp (1782–83) of the Continental Army during the American Revolution, has been reconstructed as a state historic site. There, at Temple Hill, General George Washington (Washington, George) ended a conspiracy among his officers and also established the Badge of Military Merit (forerunner of the Purple Heart). Area 35 square miles (90 square km). Pop. (1990) 22,937; (2000) 22,866.
