SCHUYLERVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - The U.S. Mint is honoring the Saratoga National Historical Park with a new quarter.

The site of a crucial Revolutionary War battle will be honored later this month through a program in which national parks are depicted on the back of quarters. The mint’s Beautiful Quarters program is a 12-year initiative designed to honor 56 national parks and other national sites.

The mint and the National Park Service will launch the Saratoga quarter at a ceremony on Nov. 17 at Schuylerville High School.

In the second Battle of Saratoga in 1777, American troops defeated the British in a victory many historians consider a turning point of the war.
