The Friends of the Saratoga Battlefield are constructing a memorial park at the location of the Sword Surrender site where British General Burgoyne surrender a complete British army to American General Gates.
This famous victory in 1777 during our Revolutionary War and the surrender of an entire British Army at Saratoga had such historic consequences that the New York Times Magazine identified Saratoga as THE most important battle ever fought anywhere in the world during the past 1000 years!
The Friends of Saratoga Battlefield, a non-profit 501C-3 educational organization, is working with several partners to make public access to this historic site a reality, worthy of those veterans who died and suffered for the freedoms we enjoy today. The Friends of Saratoga Battlefield in partnership with Open Space Institute, the Hudson-Hoosic Partnership and Saratoga National Historical Park are making this memorial park a reality.
Donations are still being accepted.
