A Tale of Two Generals: The Later History of the Benedict Arnold Monument at Saratoga Battlefield ** CANCELLED **


Thursday, November 9, 6:30 pm
Saratoga National Historical Park Visitor Center Theater

Benedict Arnold is a figure well-known to Americans and aficionados of the Battles of
Saratoga. Less well known is General John Watts de Peyster, a resident of Dutchess
County, New York, who paid for a special inscription to be added to the Arnold
Monument on the battlefield. Join us to hear the colorful tale of this eccentric and scandalous nineteenth-century New York personality, who, like Arnold, found himself at
the receiving end of nearly everyone’s ire.
