July 15-25, 2015, WBCCI Unit Caravan U-417
This exciting, family friendly caravan will take itís participants from Fort Stanwix and the Battle of Oriskany, one of the bloodiest of the Revolutionary War, through the changing fortunes of Fort Ticonderoga, the Battles of Saratoga that decided the fate of General Burgoyneís army and the strategic situation of West Point on the Hudson River. There will also be a day trip into
NYC to visit colonial sites and explore downtown Manhattan. At each stop costumed guides and re-enactors will meet us and explain tactics and strategies and bring a human element to the conduct of war.
Along the way there will be time to drive through the Adirondack Park and down the Hudson River Valley and explore the towns of Warrensburg, Lake George, Saratoga, Newburgh and Kingston as well as to enjoy the amenities of the campgrounds we will visit.
Social events will include happy hours, dinners, cookouts and lunches at West Point and Fraunces Tavern.
All campground fees (except as noted), tours, welcome dinner, final banquet, cookout, and West Point lunch are included in the kitty fee.
