        Newtown Battlefield Monument

        During the Revolutionary War, George Washington ordered General Sullivan to drive Iroquois tribes from their settlements as punishment for Native Americans that sided with the British. This became known as the Sullivan-Clinton Campaign. In August of 1779, what is now known as Elmira became the site of a major battle over the Chemung Valley. In 1912 a monument was erected and today the battlefield remains a historic landmark in New York State.
