CROTON-ON-HUDSON-- New York National Guard Soldiers, and New York Guard members assigned to Joint Task Force COVID-19 headquartered at Camp Smith Training Site near Peekskill gathered to lay at wreath at the memorial plaque dedicated to Revolutionary War Soldier John Jacob "Rifle Jack" Peterson at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson N.Y. on March 4 2021. Peterson was a Revolutionary War patriot of African and Kitchawan descent who interfered with Benedict Arnold's plans to betray the American fort at West Point to the British in 1780. Peterson fired on a boat that was going to pick up Major Andre, Arnold's contact. That action eventually resulted in Andre's capture.
