Hessians: German Soldiers in the American Revolutionary War

Saratoga National Historical Park Visitor Center Theater, 648 Rte 32, Stillwater | 6:30 p.m. 

Between 1776 and 1783, Britain hired more than thirty thousand German soldiers to fight in its war against the rebels in North America. Collectively known as Hessians, the soldiers as well as accompanying civilians produced a large volume of records that provide detailed accounts of the American war, land, and people. Drawing from this rich material, the presentation will highlight some of the key experiences of these participants in a war on a distant continent against a people that had done them no harm.
