Dr. Henry Mitchell MacCracken, à l'origine du Hall of Fame et Chancellor à l'université de New York a déclaré à ce sujet :« Abandonné aux envahisseurs de 1776, ce sommet est maintenant repris par les troupes des 'Grands Américains', le général Washington à leur tête. Ils prennent possession de ces hauteurs et sont destinés à les tenir, nous le croyons, pour toujours. » (fr)
