There was a German physician, Frederick Wasmus,  with Burgoyne's Army, sent with Baum to Bennington, captured and sent to Boston. His Diary covers everything from Quebec through Boston, and I think beyond. It has been translated by Helga Doblin, but I was not aware it had been published. You should contact the Saratoga Battlefield staff for leads.

In the summer of 1999 I visited Lexington and Concord. In the National Park
Visitor's Center I saw a book (diary?) written by a German doctor with
Burgoyne. Foolishly I did not buy the book. When I went back this summer to
pick it up it was gone and of course no one at the Center knew where I might
find the book (perhaps because I did not have the title.....). Does anyone
know what the title might have been or where I might locate a book on this
topic?  Thanks Les Buell
