Really great! Went on a Tuesday. Sadly the welcome desk and building was closed. Otherwise they have a hiking path with signs. It is nicely preserved piece of history.
We had an awesome visit to the Oriskany Battlefield with my son and the boy scout troop. We had a local guide who is a history buff walk us through all the history. We started at the front and he walked us throughout the entire battle and what happened where. He also had brought his replica rifle that the soldiers would have been using during the battle and let all the boys hold it and feel its weight. The boys had a blast and it is hilly so not good for those who are not very mobile. He had the boys march in line down one of the hills just like the soldiers did and we were transported back in time.
