I found this site through Trip Advisor. The site is in a quiet location which is very apropos considering the reason for the Monument. The Groundskeeper was very helpful in describing the location and battlefield situation. It's worth the side trip to see a bit...More

We went to Oriskany Battlefield before Fort Stanwix, with minimal knowledge of the the siege in 1777. The NPS employee was very informative! We enjoyed our time here.

Small site where an overlooked but pivotal battle took place. Can easily be seen in an hour. Small visitor's center. I was the only one there that afternoon. Must admit, I had not heard that much about the battle. Very interesting. I recommend going to...More

Couple this with a visit to Ft. Stanwix and you will understand the very important significance of this site, the monument and why it is such Hallowed Grounds. Take the time to read the placards placed around the site to understand the role this battle...More

A small but important battle took place here. It is sacred ground; many of the fallen are buried here. A small visitor center with a well informed volunteer helped us to understand what happened here. We even arrived in a thunderstorm, just like the original...More

You really need to visit Oriskany when visiting Fort Stanwix. This gives you an additional look at what took place in the Mohawk Valley. You should check this out.

It can take as little as 15 minutes (if you don't walk the Battlefield) or as much as two hours if you read all the signs or visit with the Ranger in the Visitors Center! It all depends on how active you wish to be!
