This week on The Historians podcast, Eric Schnitzer, a park ranger/historian at Saratoga National Historical Park, discusses the German soldiers, commonly called Hessians, who fought for the British in the northern campaign of the American Revolution in 1777. Schnitzer was one of the speakers at a conference in June sponsored by the Fort Plain Museum.
