A key military figure in American victories over the British in the Revolutionary War, Thaddeus Kosciuszko was a Polish-born adopted son of Philadelphia. As a colonel and military engineer in the Continental Army, his greatest triumph over enemy forces was at the Battle of Saratoga. Thomas Jefferson described Kosciuszko "as pure a son of liberty as I have ever known". This National Memorial was Kosciuszko's Georgian style home. Today many of his personal belongings are on display. A short movie is also available upon request along with a tour of the building.
