Capital-Saratoga

    The seat of New York’s government has also been at the center of American history since the nation’s founding. At Saratoga, the American fight for independence was tipped in favor of the new nation. While traveling to Washington DC, President-elect Abraham Lincoln stopped here to reassure Americans of his commitment to the Union. Four future presidents, including Franklin Roosevelt, would serve New Yorkers here as governor. Visitors can explore the Saratoga Battlefield, the Capitol building, the New York State Museum and other sites important to the nation’s military and political history.
