Saratoga National Historical Park: Virtual Monument Tour

Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T!

We visited Saratoga National Historical Park on our way home from Lake Placid several years ago. At the end of our self-guided tour, we stopped by the Saratoga Monument. Now, through a web tour from the NPS and a YouTube video (embedded below), you can experience the historic battlefield from the comfort of your armchair
