Virtual Author Series

schnitzer book cover

The Fort Ticonderoga Author Series features presentations by authors of books related to Fort Ticonderoga’s history.

Eric Schnitzer talks about his book Don Troiani’s Campaign to Saratoga–1777: The Turning Point of the Revolutionary War in Paintings, Artifacts, and Historical Narrative

The battles of Saratoga are cited as the turning point in the Revolutionary War. Beginning when the armies prepared to face off in June 1777 through the surrender of the British Army in October, the battles of the Northern Campaign were significant to the outcome of the war and the fight for independence. As a result of the Saratoga battles, the patriots gained confidence, the French entered the war, and the British plan to win the war quickly was put to an end.

Master historical painter Don Troiani and historian Eric Schnitzer combine their talents in this new book on Saratoga, the Revolutionary War campaign. This magnificently illustrated history features many new artworks, previously unpublished eyewitness accounts, photographs of important artifacts, and a solid, detailed historical narrative including background on the campaigns leading up to Saratoga.

Eric Schnitzer has been an interpreter and historian at Saratoga National Historical Park for more than 20 years. He is recognized for his writing and research on the Northern Campaign of 1777, has published countless articles, lectures, and provided historical editing for many publications on the subject. Eric earned a degree in History and Fine Art from SUNY Albany and is the founder and commander of the recreated 62nd Regiment of Foot. He lives in White Creek, NY with his wife Jenna.
