Visitors can experience the ordeal in the very cellar wherein took refuge Baroness Frederika Riedesel with her three young daughters, other women, wounded and dying soldiers of the British Army during its catastrophic retreat ending in its surrender after the Battles of Saratoga. That terrifying week will come back to life with the thirty minute reenactment by the Baroness relating her tribulation in those famous days. While watching, visitors will be standing on a floor bloodstained by the wounded. Bibliophiles will have an opportunity to view the first (1827) edition in English of the Baroness Riedesel's celebrated Journal.
