Residents at Prestwick Chase are treated to a lecture on the world wide effect of The Campaign of 1777. Joseph Craig, a National Park Ranger of the Saratoga Battlefield reviews the world wide implications of the victory at Saratoga. Unlike in previous wars the British suffer at the hands of Major General Horatio Gates of the Continental Army, their first fielded army surrender. In other conflicts the British had lost ships, forts, but never the forced surrender of a major fielded army. This fascinating lecture reviews how time and world wide events now had begun to run against General Burgoyne and his British forces.
