    Men of African Descent at the Battle of Saratoga

    About 400 black men served in American Continental and militia units in the Battles of Saratoga. They fought shoulder to shoulder with white soldiers—but an integrated US army would not exist again until the Korean War! That's just scratching the surface of Park Ranger Eric Schnitzer's presentation as he discusses free and enslaved African Americans who fought in "the most important battle of the last 1000 years.
