Members of The New York State Society of the Cincinnati are involved with a number of activities throughout the year. These include both educational and historical celebrations in the state of New York as well as on a national level. In addition, the society supports historical research and preservation with specific projects. Recently, these efforts have included:
Annual financial support for the upkeep and development of the grounds and building of historic Mount Gulian in Fishkill, NY, the physical birthplace of the Society of the Cincinnati, across the Hudson River from the New Windsor Cantonment. This support also extends to financial and in-kind contributions for the Cincinnati Room at Mount Gulian; a special museum area dedicated to telling the history of the Cincinnati with words, pictures and historical artifacts.
Annual sponsorship of the New York State Society of the Cincinnati George Washington Distinguished Scholar of the Year, funding research and writings dealing with the Revolution.
The annual presentation of a saber to the outstanding cadet in History at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. This special award is made each year by a member of the society and was funded by a grant from the Lutterloh family in honor of Blanche Lutterloh.
The participation of members of the New York Cincinnati in the annual Flag Day parade in New York City sponsored by the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York and by major patriotic organizations.
Annual support to the General Society of the Cincinnati, both from individual members and from our New York Society.
