This ravine, located at the historic Saratoga Battlefield, separated American and British observation posts during the 18 day period between the first and second battles. 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 18 days 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.
