Using Saratoga Springs as our base of operations, this experience will include a Friday evening dinner and lecture given by the Institute’s historical programs manager, Andrew Outten, discussing the campaigns of 1777, the political and military mistakes made by 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 bus tour of Saratoga National Historical Park and other key locations to closely examine the events that transpired.
