Aerial America is a television series airing on the Smithsonian Channel. This episode is filmed in Saratoga N.Y. area.

Some of the most famous battles in the American Revolutionary War took place in Upstate New York.  British forces surrendered in the  Battle of Saratoga. France then acknowledges America's independence and enters the war as our ally.

The Smithsonian Channel takes viewers on a flight to look at the Saratoga Monument and the Schuyler Farmhouse that was General Philip Schuyler's second home. It's said the house was burned by the British as they were retreating north from the battlefield (about 8 miles south of Saratoga Monument). After the war, Schuyler salvaged what he could and rebuild the farmhouse in just 29 days.
