Saratoga National Historic Park

Saratoga Battle Site

Saratoga National Historic Park situated 15 miles (24 km) South- East of Saratoga Springs in New York state is a famous battle site of a Revolutionary War. Here in 1777 Battle of Saratoga was fought between American patriots under leadership of Horatio Gates and 9000 British regular troops or "Redcoats" along with Hessians, and Native Americans under command of General John Burgoyne. The battle was decisively won by the American Colonial forces. This ensured that Hudson river corridor was kept by United States. French King Louis XVI impressed by this battle sent troops the next year to help the Colonial army to continue their struggle against the British crown.
