The United States Military Academy

Last year we visited The United States Military Academy at West Point NY. I posted some images of the Chapel and other points of interest but for some reason didn’t include these three images. I felt then and do now that these images are not strong enough to stand on their own but together the provide some familiar views of this famous place. This is a great time of year to visit West Point and the tour is well worth it.

Battle Monument

Battle Monument is a large doric column located on Trophy Point at the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY. It was designed by Stanford White and dedicated in 1897 to honor Civil War veterans. It is important to remember while touring West Point that many Civil War veterans from the Confederacy were West Point graduates and honored in addition to their Union Counterparts. The view from Trophy Point is amazing and often called The Million Dollar View.

The Chapel at West Point

We toured West Point this week and it was very impressive and informative. This is the interior of the Cadet Chapel. The building was beautiful and well cared for and you can just imagine a service with “The Long Grey Line” in attendance. You have no doubt from seeing the organization of the prayer books that this is a military chapel.
