SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - The Revolutionary War battles at Saratoga are the subject of a presentation by a National Park Service ranger and a new book by an archaeologist who has conducted excavations at the upstate New York battlefield.

Eric Schnitzer, a historian at Saratoga National Historic Park, is giving a free talk on the battles Saturday afternoon at the New York State Military Museum in Saratoga Springs.

Schnitzer will discuss the myths and misconceptions that have grown up around the battles, fought in September and October 1777. He contributed to a recently published book on the archaeology of the battlefield.

Another book on the battles is being published in October. “1777: Tipping Point at Saratoga” was written by Dean Snow, a former University at Albany faculty member who has dug on the battlefield.
