Site Of The Battle Of Oriskany,
August 6, 1777
Oriskany Battlefield
(Eight miles west of Utica)

The Battle of Oriskany was one of the bloodiest engagements of the American Revolution. British and Indians here ambushed the Tryon County militia as they were marching to the relief of Fort Stanwix (Rome). General Nicholas Herkimer, though wounded, rallied his forces and directed the fighting until the enemy fled. Defeated at Oriskany and unable to force the surrender of Fort Stanwix, the British retreated to Canada. These reverses, with their defeat at Saratoga thwarted Burgoyne's plan to divide the colonies by conquering New York.
