Geocache Description:

Geo-historians shouldn't have a problem with this one. The coordinates above take you near the trail head, but you will have to decode the captured message below to find the cache. It is located on OSI property. Do NOT enter the Railroad corridor. You must HURRY! The fate of the cause is now in your hands!

General,

The following message was discovered on the person of a spy captured last evening attempting to cross back into British territory. He was wearing a Colonial uniform and the following note was discovered concealed within his boot. We have detained him at Tappan and have sent this note to you with much haste for we fear that it may contain valuable information critical to our cause.
