John Burgoyne passed away in London #OTD in 1792. John Burgoyne passed away in London #OTD in 1792. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, Burgoyne was sent to Boston and witnessed the Battle of Bunker Hill. Frustrated at being subordinate to other generals, Burgoyne traveled back to England. He soon returned to North America to reinforce Guy Carleton in Québec and successfully assisted in repelling the Americans and pursuing them up Lake Champlain. Burgoyne returned to England again and expanded on a plan developed by his erstwhile superior, to cut off New England from the other colonies. Now in overall command, Burgoyne’s advanced south in 1777, leading to the recapture of Fort Ticonderoga, the progress of his campaign is illustrated in this map. After fighting two pitched battles, Burgoyne surrendered his troops at Saratoga on October 17th, 1777 and was then sent back to England on parole. Only officially released from parole in 1782 he continued to validate his conduct and briefly commanded the forces in Ireland until 1784. Burgoyne had limited success politically as an opposition member, but spent much of his remaining life dedicated to playwrighting, dying while working on a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It.” #ticonderogacollections #fortticonderoga #ticonderoga #18thcentury #militaryhistory #history
