Battlefields serve as both important memorials and vital resources for understanding and appreciating the past. In 2022, the American Revolution Institute launched a new tour series to explore our nation’s Revolutionary War battlefields. Each of our two-day battlefield tour experiences consists of a dinner and lecture given by a scholar on a subject related to the featured battlefields and is accompanied by an in-depth guided tour led by an expert.

Our Next Battlefield Tour

The Battle of Saratoga, New York,

April 12-13, 2024

Join us on April 12-13, 2024, as we travel to New York and explore a critical turning point of the American Revolution: the Battle of Saratoga. Using Saratoga Springs as our base of operations, this two-day experience will include a Friday evening dinner and lecture given by the Institute’s historical programs manager, Andrew Outten, discussing the campaigns of 1777, political and military mistakes made by the British leadership, and other events that led to the surrender of British general John Burgoyne. On Saturday, historian and National Park Service ranger Eric Schnitzer will lead a day-long guided tour exploring Saratoga National Historical Park and other key locations that encompassed the battle to closely examine the events that transpired. Attendees can purchase a full battlefield tour ticket that includes all aspects of this interpretive experience, or a Friday dinner and lecture only ticket. See below for additional information.
