Below are local, regional, state, and national – Adirondack Mountains, Champlain, Hudson, and Mohawk Valley, and Upstate NY – associations, businesses, and organizations that proudly wish to be affiliated with the journey of this exciting project which is a veteran owned and operated enterprise.
This independent film project and the coming 250th anniversary of the Battles of Bennington and Saratoga seek to commemorate and reconnect us with the area’s rich history so that it is well understood that the truly complete victories at Bennington and Saratoga saved the American Revolution. These stirring triumphs that occurred in the Upper Hudson Valley in the late summer and early autumn of 1777 changed the destiny of a nation and the course of world history.
Saratoga is a renown destination that is beloved for many reasons: Health, History, and Horses but also the unrivaled hospitality that visitors find here in such abundance. The bucolic months of September and October offer countless autumn activities and opportunities. Come and visit the region’s beautiful boutiques, historic sites, hotels, inns, markets, museums, natural wonders, parks, restaurants, stores, shops, and theaters.
The Battle of Bennington that occurred on August 16 and the Battles of Saratoga that occurred on September 19 and October 7 – were followed by General Burgoyne’s shocking surrender on October 17. Please generously support our project and the below associations, businesses, enterprises, and organizations. Come and learn about America’s Turning Point and discover why Upstate New York is the place to visit to experience the awesome grandeur of autumn and to reconnect with our nation’s treasured history.
I Love New York
We want you to fall in love with it, too! Come and and experience the beautiful and exciting Turning Point Trail – and immerse yourself in true New York spirit. From apple orchards to art exhibits, from balloon festivals to bakeries, and from concerts to craft breweries, there’s something for everyone. Explore the magic of fall harvests, wander through farmers’ markets, and dare to enter haunted houses. Stand on hallowed battlefields, savor the finest wines, and enjoy apple and pumpkin picking. Take scenic bike rides, camp under the starry skies, and warm up by campfires. Treat yourself to cookies, donuts, ice cream, pastries, and pies. Embark on adventures, cast your line for fishing, and hop on hay rides. Under harvest moons and shooting stars, hike through breathtaking landscapes, steeped in history and perfect for hunting. Indulge in cider and wine tasting, marvel at the beauty of leaf peeping, and savor the sweetness of maple syrup. Create cherished memories, catch a movie or live music performance, and capture the essence of it all through photography. Don’t forget scenic drives, retail therapy while shopping, and tranquil moments of stargazing. It’s a place where you can take wistful walks and truly embrace the enchantment of New York.
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.
— PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
May all of you, as Americans, never forget your heroic origins and never fail to seek divine guidance… We are forever indebted to those that have given their lives that we might be free.
