On the morning of October 17, 1777, a British army over 6,000 strong made preparations to surrender arms and ordnance to the Northern Army forces of the United States of America. British Lt. General John Burgoyne rode to meet his conqueror, Major General Horatio Gates, and the two generals and their staffs retired to this hilltop to mark the occasion.
