1. The Breymann Redoubt Marker
Inscription. Failing to capture the Balcarres Redoubt, the Americans surged against Crown Forcesí fortifications built here. Attacking relentlessly, they overwhelmed this important defensive position just before nightfall, October 7, 1777.

Never more than a crude barrier of logs, this fortification is now known as the Breymann Redoubt, named after the German officer who commanded the German Grenadier defenders.
 
Erected by Saratoga National Historical Park, National Park Service.
