Andre's Execution

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Place of execution. The place of Andre’s execution is now designated by a stone, lying on the right of a lane which runs from the highway from Tappan village to old Tappan, on the westerly side of a large peach orchard owned by Dr. Bartow, about a quarter of a mile from Washington’s head-quarters. The stone is a small bowlder, on the upper surface of which is inscribed ‘Andre executed Oct. 2d, 1780.’ It is about three feet in length. This stone was placed there and inscribed in 1847, by a patriotic merchant of New York. A more elegant and durable monument should be erected upon the spot."—Lossing, 1851
