Saratoga National Historical Park [NY]

It was in Saratoga that in 1777 American forces forced a major British army to surrender. The victory secured foreign recognition and support that enabled the American forces to win the war. In addition to the battlefield, the park is host to the Schuyler House, the home of American General Philip Schuyler, and the Saratoga Monument, a 155-foot obelisk commentating the Battle of Saratoga.

The park offers walking tours, a visitor center, and tours of the Shuyler House. The website offers detailed historical information, visitor information, and a calendar of events. In order to contact the site via email, use the "contact us" link located on the left side of the webpage.
