 How many know that there is a National Park just 19 miles north of the Albany Airport? It is the Saratoga National Historical Park, which preserves lands on which the Battles of Saratoga were fought in September and October, 1777 during America’s revolutionary war. Ray Misiewicz will describe British Major General John Burgoyne’s Northern Campaign and introduce you to the people, places and events on the American and British sides in what has been called the turning point of the American Revolution. It describes how the battlefield returned to farming, became a New York State Historic Site and was later transformed by President Franklin Roosevelt into the Saratoga National Historical Park.
