Details

The Battle of Fort Ann, fought on July 8, 1777, was an engagement between Continental Army forces in retreat from Fort Ticonderoga and forward elements of John Burgoyne`s much larger British army that had driven them from Ticonderoga, early in the Saratoga campaign of the American Revolutionary War. Here the Patriots stalled the progress of British Gen. John Burgoyne`s men long enough to supplement their forces at Saratoga.
