Hosted by The Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York whose mission is to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in military, naval, or civil service, by their acts or counsel, achieved American independence; and to promote and assist in the proper celebration of anniversaries of events relating to the War of the Revolution.
On November 25, 1783, the British Army left New York after occupying the city for seven years. That night, the first American-born Governor of New York, George Clinton, honored George Washington, the Commander-in-Chief, with a banquet held in Fraunces Tavern where thirteen toasts were offered beginning with “The United States of America” and ending with “May the Remembrances of this Day be a lesson to Princes.”
