America’s History is proud to continue its partnership with Fort Ticonderoga by again offering a special one-day Revolutionary War tour. This tour will continue Burgoyne’s 1777 campaign by concentrating on sites beyond the Saratoga National Battlefield Park. Led by Eric Schnitzer, chief historian at the Saratoga National Historical Park and Bruce Venter, we will spend the entire day exploring Victory Woods, Stark’s Knoll, Fort Hardy, the new Burgoyne’s surrender park and some other seldom seen sites associated with Burgoyne’s campaign. One of the foremost experts of the Saratoga campaign, Eric Schnitzer, will review the strategy and tactics of the opposing leaders in a comprehensive narration as Burgoyne retreats from the battlefield. This is a rare opportunity to visit sites seldom seen near Saratoga with a leading authority on the campaign. Eric’s 2016 Saratoga tour was very popular and received excellent comments from tour participants. We will return to Fort Ticonderoga in time for you to attend the opening session of Fort Ticonderoga’s American Revolution Seminar.

What’s included: Motor coach transportation, lunch, snack and beverage breaks, all admissions and gratuities, a map and materials package and the services of two tour leaders selected for their knowledge and expertise.
