All visitors to the United States Military Academy are encouraged to tour the Museum to view the oldest and largest diversified public collection of miltaria in the Western Hemisphere. The Museum supports cadet academic, military and cultural instruction. Its collections include nearly all aspects of military history and encompass the history of West Point and the United States Military Academy, the evolution of warfare, and the development of the American Armed Forces. Based upon captured British materials brought to West Point after the British defeat at Saratoga in 1777, the Museum collections actually predate the founding of the United States Military Academy. When the Academy opened in 1802, many Revolutionary War trophies remained to be used for cadet instruction. By the 1820s, a teaching collection of artifacts existed at the Military Academy and after the Mexican War (1846 - 1848) West Point was designated by Executive Order as the permanent depository of war trophies. In 1854 the first public museum was opened and today it represents the culmination of more than two centuries of preserving our military heritage.

Join us in welcoming the Elmendorph Handspinners Guild of Red Hook New York. Over the two days the guild will hold a quasi “Fleece to Shawl” competition. On Saturday begins the competition between 5 individuals (a weaver, a plyer, and 3 spinners). The wool used for the weaving will be in lock form requiring carding, spinning and plying. The yarn produced will then be woven into a shawl which will measure at least 18 inches by 72 inches. In a full-fledged competition this would be accomplished in 3-4 hours and be judged for the evenness of the spinning, the complexity of the pattern wove, the use of color, and the evenness the weaving. On Sunday there will be a demonstration in the art of spinning with a wheel and with a drop spindle. A drop spindle has been used almost since the beginning of time. It is still in use today in many countries throughout the world. Its advantages include low cost to begin this type of spinning as well as it’s portability.
