Margaret Corbin Circle - Fort Tryon Park

Washington Heights / Inwood

explore visiting  

Margaret Corbin (1751–1800Α), for whom Fort Tryon Park’s drive and entrance are named, took control of her fallen husband John’s cannon and fought during the 1776 battle at the site of what is now known as Fort Tryon Park. The only woman buried in the cemetery at West Point, Margaret Corbin was wounded during the clash; her story was largely buried until Washington Heights residents sought to commemorate her in the 1970s.
