In October 1777, the beautiful home of American General Philip Schuyler was burned to the ground by British forces retreating north from the Battles of Saratoga. Following the surrender of the British, General Schuyler lost no time rebuilding this house. Begun within the first few days of November, the construction was completed in less than one month. Today, Schuyler House is part of Saratoga National Historical Park. Schuyler House has been visited by many historic figures over the ages, including George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Marquis de Lafayette.
