City Center Welcomes ‘Saratoga Surrender’ Sculpture

By Staff Report | Local News

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Springs City Center’s 30th Anniversary celebration continues as it welcomes the ‘Saratoga Surrender Sculpture,’ a bronze bas-relief, on loan from The Friends of Saratoga Battlefield. This massive 4 by 6 foot bronze depicts the “turning point of America’s Revolutionary War,” when British General Burgoyne surrendered his sword to American General Gates. The event was a pivotal moment in America¹s quest for independence. 

Chas Fagan, a nationally known painter and sculptor, created the striking new work of art. The subject is based on artist John Trumbull¹s famous oil painting called “The Surrender of John Burgoyne,” which is prominently housed in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. 

The ‘Saratoga Surrender Sculpture’ is now on display in the City Center¹s main lobby Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday, May 19. The City Center is located at 522 Broadway in Saratoga Springs. 

After a tour of various venues in Saratoga County, the artwork will be permanently placed in a new memorial park called the Saratoga Surrender Site, south of Schuylerville.
