USMA Kosciuszko Monument at Age 195

Welcome to the Website

of the

American Association of the Friends of Kosciuszko at West Point, Inc.

Annually Commemorating the Life of

(1746 - 1817)

Polish and American Patriot and Hero, Altruist, and
Champion of Freedom, Independence, Democracy,
and Equality on Two Continents,

and held to be the

Patron Saint of West Point in the Early American Republic,

and concomitantly one of our Nation's earliest secular saints.


 As it has done since 2004, and would have done on April 24-25, 2020, but the unanticipated Covid-19 pandemic forced our Association's 17th Annual Kosciuszko Conference and Kosciuszko Commemorative Events to be cancelled. Our 18th Annual Tadeusz Kosciuszko Conference program on April 23, 2021 had to occur remotely via the basis of ZOOM internet technology. Nonetheless, it had been successful for all concerned.

Finally, we had been able to conduct our 20th Annual Tadeusz Kosciuszko Conference and related Kosciuszko Memorial events in person at West Point on May 5th and 6th, 2023 respectively. 

Our 21st Annual Tadeusz Kosciuszko Conference and related Memorial events are scheduled to occur on May 3rd and 4th, 2024. Please save those dates.

Thank you for your continued loyal support.

We hope to see you at West Point in 2024, and please note:

Since our 21st Annual Tadeusz Kosciuszko Conference will be held on the 333rd anniversary of Poland's Constitution of May 3, 1791, and in the 75th anniversary year of NATO's creation, the Conference accordingly will be titled:

"ENDURING STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL ANNIVERSARIES AND THEIR LEGACIES: Poland's Constitution of May 3, 1791; and Creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on April 4, 1949"   

The Association's sole mission is dedicated to illuminating and spreading the inspiring and enduring story of the life of Tadeusz Kosciuszko and his times, which more often than not have parallels in our 21st century world.
