With the announcement just ~niada that
Secretary Root has requested Congress
to appropriate $300,000 for the immediate
improvement -of Fort .■'Hamilton,':' New-
York Harbor,, many memories arise -in
connection with the' present fort and
reservation grounds, soon to be altered
beyond recognition of, olden-time .days.
These memories : take •■ one , back to the
days of tho-Nyack Indian tribes on Long
: Island; then to = Revolutionary days.- and
' then to the years of ISCO, when, in 1514,
'.theiar-d needed for a fort was ceded ..by
New York; city., for proper ocean fortifi
cations around New York harbor. In
1525, ground v/as broken for the
fort, ' which -succeeded the firstj small
affair of previous year. 1 ?.. Work was com
pleted July, 1831; and Fort. Hamilton,
' nam'^; for Alexander Hamilton; became
a reality. : .
But the fort itself, is not all. there is
to the village of that; name, now; a part
of N^w York by" the consolidation; act
in 1900. ■ There.are .tender memories; cf
. the old Tlobert B. Lop' homestead and
of; St. John's church, made historic by
happenings. connected with.'. the" civil 1 war,
and in which southern hero's shared:
„It was in the little frame ' church on
Clark -street.: that. | 'Stonewall','-: Jackson
was baptized. He was then a. major in
the army and about 30 years old. He
came to Fort Hamilton -with the. First
Artillery, in 1 1S48, following, the Mexican
war. • ■ -, - ;'.;' :-': -' '' ; ■
St. - John? 3. church T records ■ show the
following interesting- entry: '
"On; Sunday, the 29th of April, 1849,. I
baptized .; Thomas Jonathan Jacison,
major in the United States army.v Spon
sors: Colonels Dimick and Taylor;; also
of the army. '■'. '."^ .'-M.' SCOFIBL.B." -'
Yearsafter, . Stonewall Jackson's widow
visited the: town and inspected .that
sacred'entry, as .she 'did- the baptismal
font, preserved most tenderly tip to the
prpsrnt •■'.■timrv.lVv St. John's narishonrrs.
During Major Jackson's, residence in the
village, he won much liking, though con
sidered somewhat eccentric. '.When, in
IS9I. all : ; the ; South; <aid . tribute j-. tp,_ the
memory of ; i t3 hero, oy erecting a- bronze
statue "at Lexington. Va., 'the aged : resi
dents of: Port Hamilton did not forget
him. either. "'" • ■ - . •-- . "> . -' \
:. And in; that cnurch also worshipped
Robert K. L*e, once its honored Ivestry- J
man. He~ was then, only a captain; being- :
about S5 - years old. With hia wife and ; j
two ?or.p_Ciistis"anrl Wi'liom. ,-Fitzhugft— *:
ho -resided in a modest frame house on j
Fourth avenue (now.; Stewart avenue). I
The house still stands intact, but is : used ',
as a "sort of summer picnlo -place,' It is,]
with pride and. tenderness that ;"'■/ Fort ;
