Officially titled the United States Military Academy at West Point, the institution is more commonly referred to as simply "West Point", amongst other nicknames. Founded in 1802 at the site of a Continental Army camp, it is the oldest continuously operating army post in the United States. The official colors of the school are black and gold, however due to the majority of the school being constructed out of granite, grey is an important color in the school psyche. The uniforms of West Point cadets are grey, the color being approved by 1816 by the Secretary of War. Collectively, the graduates of West Point are called 'the long grey line'.
