WELCOME to Bennington Battlefield State Historic Site

Bennington Battlefield State Historic Site is the Rensselaer County, New York location where the Battle of Bennington occurred on the 16th of August 1777. 

Here, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts militia under General John Stark rebuffed a British attempt led by Colonel Friedrich Baum to capture American stores. The American victory cut off supplies to British General John Burgoyne as he made his push toward Albany, New York and set the stage for his subsequent surrender at Saratoga. 

It was declared a National Historic Landmark on 1961 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places when the Register was created in 1966.

It is located on Route 67 in Walloomsac, New York, and is owned by New York State and by private owners.

Although the battle took place at this site entirely within New York State, the Bennington Monument, about 10 miles away in Vermont, also commemorates the Battle of Bennington.
