The " Boot" Monument for Benedict Arnold
This is the "boot" monument at Saratoga Battlefield. If you've read the book, you know what an important role Benedict Arnold played in the Battles of Saratoga. However, his later treason meant that no mention of his contributions would be publicly displayed. At the Saratoga Battlefield this monument, simply a boot-no words; marks the spot of one of his greatest moments. Again, if you've read the book you get the significance. If not, well, you should.
