Wilkinson Trail Kids' MP3 Audio Tour – new in 2015
Narrated completely by kids...for kids!
How might the Battles of Saratoga appeared through the eyes of young people?
Download these MP3 audio files to your phone or MP3 player and listen in to hear their perspectives as you hike the Battlefield accompanied by your Narrator, Mary Morton, and George Williams...and the adult with your group of course. Start playing each narration at its respective Station Marker: Track A at Station A, Track B at Station B, and so on.
After listening to these narrations you may even be able to teach a little history to the adults in your group!
These audio tour files accompany a shorter, 2-mile hike along the Wilkinson Trail using the Liaison (cutoff) trail. Please use a copy of the Wilkinson Trail Map to better understand the tour sequence. A downloadable copy of this map may be found on our Maps page.
Our special thanks to David and Ginger Hildebrand, who kindly allowed us to use selections from their recordings of "The White Cockade" and "The Road to Boston" for this project.
