    Greetings:

    I’m a historical writer and I’m working on a historical novel titled The Knife and the Gospel. The book tells the story of the five months of the 1777 Saratoga Campaign in the American Revolutionary War: June, 1777, as the troops of both Great Britain and the United States of America move into battles from Fort Ticonderoga, all the way to the Battles of Saratoga September 19, October 7, and the events leading up to October 17, when the British army surrendered. The story is character-driven and told from the perspective of various protagonists such as John Burgoyne, William Twiss, Friedrich Baum, Benedict Arnold, Daniel Morgan, and Horatio Gates.

    I would like to establish a correspondence with some knowledgeable members of your organization to further consult historical opinions of the events and the people, the regular men – and women – who took part in the campaign for the most accurate depiction possible.

    I would greatly appreciate any assistance at all possible.

    Thank you in advance.

      Hi Lewis, The 23rd Regiment was involved in every major campaign of the war except Burgoyne’s. While I am sure we have many members who might be able to help you, I could, if you like, put you in touch with the 9th Regiment of Foot. They were one of the Burgoyne regiments, sent here, and surrendering with, him as well.
