In 1777, British General John Burgoyne led several thousand British and German soldiers across the river where Hudson Crossing Park is now situated to engage American forces on his quest south to conquer Albany. To cross the river, soldiers lashed together a number of flat-bottomed wooden crafts to form a floating “Bridge of Boats,” and then marched across. The resulting Battles of Saratoga are considered to be sparks that precipitated a turning point in the war and to eventual victory for the Americans.
