Army Trades Weekend at Saratoga National Historical Park

Stillwater, NY—
Armies in the American Revolution were towns on the move and included
important craftsmen like blacksmiths, carpenters, tailors, shoemakers, and tinsmiths. These
tradesmen and women kept armies clothed, and repaired vital items needed in the fight for
freedom.

Chat with demonstrators during Army Trades Weekend Saturday and Sunday July 15-16, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and learn how items are made 18th-century style. Craftsmen will be set up on the lawn at the Visitor Center. See the tools of the trade, ask questions, and learn about those who supported armies on the move.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this or other events, please call the Visitor Center at 518-670-2985 or check our website at http://www.nps.gov/sara or on Facebook and Twitter: @SaratogaNHP
