This 22-acre parcel of land, located in the Village of Victory, NY (about 8 1/2 miles north of the Battlefield), marks the final encampment site for the British Army under General John Burgoyne prior to their October 17, 1777 surrender to American forces under General Horatio Gates. There is an accessible boardwalk and pathway that runs about 1/2 mile through Victory Woods, along with interpretive signs that help tell the story of the last stand for Burgoyne's surrounded army.
