The mission of the Historical Society of Saratoga Springs is to foster public education and chronicle the story of Saratoga Springs’ history by operating the History Museum, conducting programs, and collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting materials that document the city’s social, political, economic, geological and cultural history.
Join us on Wednesday, October 25, at 7pm in the Canfield Casino for the Annual Meeting of the Historical Society, followed by a program titled “A Soldier’s Life at the Battles of Saratoga,” presented by the History Museum’s Executive Director, James Parillo.
After a short business meeting, Parillo will give a talk dressed as an 18th century soldier. He’ll discuss the history of the Battles of Saratoga and examine the difficulties of life as a soldier in the 18th century. Parillo will bring clothing and equipment of both the American and British armies to paint a vivid picture of the soldiers who fought, suffered, and died in the 1700s.
This event is free for members of the History Museum, $10 for the general public.
