Thomas David Bullard 1930 - 2023
The Board of The Marshall House, Inc. expresses profound regret at the loss of David Bullard, friend and mentor.
David Bullard died February 19, 2023 at his home The Marshall House.
David's inspiration led to renewed action and remembrance of the events of America’s War of Independence. Many visitors to the house were fortunate to learn from him stories of 250 years of history.
The Marshall family and The Marshall House, Inc. will continue to tell of the important events that occurred in old Saratoga during the Revolutionary War and in the times that followed.
Visitors to this website are invited to view the video narrative about David Bullard and his house. This video was completed a short time ago.
The second symposium Women in War was held in May 2023. We are grateful to Historians of Saratoga Town and County, and County governance for embracing this heritage.
Opportunities to visit the house will be posted on this website.
Please note the mailing address will now be P.O. Box 114, Schuylerville, NY 12871.
News & Events
Holiday welcome at the Marshall House
The Marshall House held a special open house on Thanksgiving Saturday, November 27th.
The Baroness Riedesel as portrayed by Debbie Bailey greeted visitors. She told the story of how she and her children endured bombardment at the Marshall House during the American siege of Saratoga in 1777.
She also described her introduction of the Christmas tree to North America at Christmastime 1781. She and her family were then in Sorel, Quebec following the long ordeal of captivity in America after the battles of Saratoga.
The setting of a live fir tree, decorated with candy and fruit and illuminated by candles, was an old German tradition that the Baroness brought to North America.
A capacity gathering gave generously to further the educational outreach of The Marshall House. Mementoes of the day were given to visitors.
The Marshall House is planning a symposium on Women in War for May, 2022.
