This statue is an important landmark for both Polish-Americans and all of us who are interested in history. It is a nice memorial as part of several memorial is on the west point campus and it's certainly worth having a look at

Kosciuszko is a hero for both US and Poland. He was recognized by those in US long time ago and that is why they made this statue for him at this breathtaking location. The view on Hudson River is amazing from here.
Kosciuszko first urge Gen. Washington and bagged Jefferson several times to open this first school in US for officers. Later he redesign West Point fortress so it could finally defend itself. He was a genius as a military engineer and as a freedom fighter. He also wrote a book for cadets at West Point (for cavalry- horse riding) which was used at this school for more than 100 years. He also earned a lot of money and real estate when fighting for US freedom, but in his will all of it he gave to Jefferson in trust so he can free as many slaves as possible and so those slaves can be give they own land to live on and out of it and so they can also be send to schools to be educated.....unfortunately, as we all know Jefferson did not do it....he only used some of this money to buy books for the Library of Congress.
