For the first time in the Trust’s history, we can save hallowed ground at the site of the famous Battle of Saratoga, a major turning point in the Revolutionary War. Along with those 26 acres, we have the chance to save 68 acres at Newtown, another important New York State Revolutionary battlefield.
The purchase price for the 94 acres at stake at Saratoga and Newtown is $307,000 total, but thanks to state and local grants, we can save them for just $57,000 – a tremendous $5.39-to-$1 match of your donation dollar.
The soldiers who fought during America’s first century sacrificed so much. Today, $57,000 can safeguard an important piece of their legacy forever.
