Horse Trail Closure
Due to extensive recent rains, the Horse Trail at the Battlefield is temporarily closed. Equestrians will be permitted to ride the road shoulder on the Tour Road. Entrance fees do apply to horseback riders; please pay at Visitor Center.
Our bookstore is operated by Eastern National, a cooperating agency that partners with Saratoga National Historical Park to provide books, educational toys, and gifts that delight, inform, and inspire.
Located in the park's Visitor Center, Eastern National Bookstore is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, seven days a week. Like the Visitor Center, it is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
The bookstore can be reached by calling 518-664-9821 ext. 2985 (also the park Information Desk). Eastern National also has a website for online browsing, at www.eparks.com

At the time of the American Revolution, boys as young as their teens could be officers in the army. There were examples, though rare, of boys as young as 12-15 years of age holding the rank of Ensign (equal today to Second Lieutenant).
