Baron von Steuben came from to America from Prussia in 1777. His purpose was to train the American troops to fight the British during the Revolutionary War. This man, tirelessly working and ensuring that Americans tirelessly drilled, was a Godsend for the American army. His drilling plans are used to this day, in West Point. He is buried here on the lands given him for his service.
