View in Saratoga, New York, where the British General John Burgoyne surrendered to American General Horatio Gates at the end of the Battles of Saratoga on October 17, 1777. Plate from 'Itineraire pittoresque du fleuve Hudson et des parties laterales de l'Amerique du Nord, d'apres les dessins originaux pris sur les lieux. Atlas.' Lithographed after a drawing by Jacques Gérared Milbert (1766-1840). In 1800 Milbert was designated to be official artist on a voyage to the South Pole but poor health forced him to stop in Ile-de-France, where he spent the next two years. In 1815 he travelled to North America, spending seven years there.
