Fort Stanwix National Monument: Known as “the fort that never surrendered,” Fort Stanwix played a vital role in the Revolutionary war where together with their Oneida allies, colonial troops were able to repel a siege in August 1777. The failed siege combined with the battles at Oriskany, Bennington, and Saratoga, thwarted an effort by the British to take the northern colonies, and led to American alliances with France and the Netherlands, and eventually to American victory.
Oriskany Battlefield State Historic Site: Fought on August 6, 1777, the Battle of Oriskany is known as one of the bloodiest of the Revolutionary War and proved to be a pivotal moment that led to the Americans’ eventual victory. The unification of the colonists and the Oneidas at Oriskany protected nearby Fort Stanwix from a forthcoming British siege. If the British and their loyalists were successful, they could’ve divided the colonies in half. Visitors to the battlefield are invited to walk the site, see a monument, view interpretive signs, and view the visitor center exhibit. The Battle of Oriskany is where the Oneida Indian Nation began its legacy as America’s First Allies.
