Camp Merritt, originally camp Tenafly, was named after Major General Wesley Merritt. Over one million soldiers passed through the camp as it was known as the “Replacement Depot” for troops sent to France. To honor those who gave their life, “The Monument” was built and today stands at the intersection of Knickerbocker Road and Madison Avenue.
