The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is commemorating the 90th Anniversary of the Temple Hill Day Program which took place May 28, 1932 on these grounds. At that ceremony, 136 local veterans of World War I were awarded their Purple Heart medals.

The program will include a presentation on the original Temple Hill Day program, the formal awarding of the Purple Heart Medal to a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. And the official opening of a new rotating exhibit about the Temple Hill Day Program. Following the Temple Hill Day ceremony at the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, the New Windsor Cantonment staff will offer a presentation and short walking tour of Temple Hill. The tour will begin in the recreated Temple of Virtue for a presentation on the landmarks of this 1782-83 winter encampment, based upon the Simeon DeWitt map. The tour will continue at the Temple Hill Monument showing its Masonic connections and orienting visitors to the Temple Hill Gate, the location of the Massachusetts hut line, guard huts and the general officer hut locations. It will conclude by showing the location of the speeches delivered May 28, 1932.
