The Fourth of July will always be extra special for 20 people at Saratoga Battlefield. They became United States citizens on Thursday.
The citizens came from several countries, including Afghanistan, Albania, Burma, Canada, China, Colombia, Guyana, India, Malaysia, Netherlands, Pakistan, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam.
The ceremony also included patriotic music and musket fire.
