Saratoga Battle Field

“We fought the Bloody British in a town called…..” Saratoga.

Canon - yep, the real deal

One of the most important battles of the American Revolution was fought on the Saratoga Battle ground.  Thanks to Teddy Roosevelt, this battle ground is a National Park, and hopefully will NEVER be messed with.

I was there on the 3rd of July. I didn’t make it to the 4th of July festivities, which usually includes a reading of the Declaration of Independence.

But here’s some pix:

A house or workshop at the Park. They keep this in good shape. They run a tight ship.
We honor our Veterans.
USA! USA!
USA! USA!
Ever feel like this?

If Bailey's happy, everyone's happy. This has nothing to do with history, but the here and now.

Thankfully, no condos will ever be built here!
