Overview

The American colonists had been fighting for independence from Britain for two years. In September 1777, thousands of British troops began marching towards Saratoga, New York. Their purpose was to split the colonies in two, weakening the Americans’ power. The colonists would not be defeated so easily. Using their hard-fighting militia, new battle tactics, and expert riflemen, the colonists forced the British troops to surrender, winning an important battle in the war for America’s independence.
