The A☆Town Rumble’s new Revolution Ride (Sat. July 9) will take you back in time to the Saratoga Battle Field National Historical Park and one of the Revolutions most important Rumbles! On October 17, 1777, after a bloody battle led by the American General Benedict Arnold, British General Burgoyne surrendered. The Battle of Saratoga was a decisive victory that became a turning point in the American War for Independence.
Our Revolution Ride will following the route of the American Continental Army as they marched up an old Iroquois Indian trail along the Hudson river. Once in the Battle Field, we will ride past Freeman Farm where the first shots were fired, and the Neilson House where the American generals stayed during the battle. We will also pass the lines of the British and American troops (now marked by colored posts) and stop at the Great Redoubt overlooking the Hudson River, a fortification built to protect British positions.
