Saratoga played a pivotal role in winning America's independence, but the contributions from this Upstate New York county did not end there. Hundreds of soldiers hailing from the region have served in all of the United States military's most crucial engagements, from the French and Indian War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hear about the aide to General George Washington, the man and his three sons who fought to preserve the nation during the Civil War, the soldiers who survived Pearl Harbor to battle Nazis at Normandy and Japanese at Iwo Jima and the modern-day heroes protecting America from foreign insurgents. From heroism abroad to heartache at home, author Paul Post commemorates the extraordinary courage that was born and bred in Saratoga County.
