Saratoga Battlefield

Three farm workers pause in their tending of the fields to look at the cameraman. One enjoys a cigarette while seated on an early tractor. These fields are located near the historic Saratoga Battlefield. 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.
