The Saratoga Battlefield is part of the National Park Service and a beloved destination for millions. The story of the battles is more than a military study of a critical turning point in the Revolutionary War. It is a significant component in defining the northeastern United States and the way Americans see each other and work with one another. It is also a story of the land and the people. Today, the National Park Service and other partners promulgate the story and the lessons learned. The story is dramatic; the impacts were pivotal and profound. Author Timothy Hughes brings the lessons drawn in today’s contexts and taken up by today’s generations together.
