Battle Hill

Description

On July 8, 1777, Burgoyne's forward advance, slowed by American General Schuyler's orders to sabotage the narrow route by dropping trees, met the retreating troops from Fort Ticonderoga at Fort Ann. The British advance, clearly outnumbered, sent for reinforcements. The Americans decided to attack while they had the numerical advantage and had succeeded in nearly surrounding the British, but retreated when Native war whoops were heard in the distance. Visit the Old Stone House Library, home to the Fort Ann Historical Society, to learn more about the Battle of Fort Ann.
