This is the back of Neilson House, the historic farmhouse where several American Generals were housed during the battles of Saratoga. The photograph features that back of the carriage barn, which was added on to the structure during the 1890s. This photograph was taken at the 151st anniversary of the first battle at Saratoga, usually referred to as the Battle at Freeman's Farm. This battle, and the following battle three weeks later, is thought to be the turning point of the war. This image was created to record the historic site activities of the New York State Conservation Department.
