Battle of Saratoga Sword Surrender Site

The Battle of Saratoga Sword Surrender Site is one of the most significant sites related to the American Revolution. Located in the Town of Saratoga, New York, the site was where British General Burgoyne surrendered to Patriot General Gates at the conclusion of the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. The ramifications of this event were twofold as it signaled to the British Crown that the tide of the Revolution was turning in favor of the Patriot cause and it engendered support from France to aid the Patriots in their efforts, thereby enabling them to ultimately claim victory. Intent on commemorating this event, the Natural Heritage Trust working with the Historic Saratoga-Washington on the Hudson Partnership commissioned planning firm Saratoga Associates to create a site development and cultural landscape treatment plan that would serve as the basis for a permanent onsite memorial. As part of the planning firm's consultant team, GDPC served as the principal investigator of the Site Development and Cultural Landscape Treatment Plan: Planning for Battles of Saratoga Sword Surrender Site, while also providing ongoing input to the firm regarding cultural resource sensitivities and regulatory compliance.
