As the campaign season opened in 1777, the American cause hung in the balance. Gen. George Washington’s defeat in New York and his subsequent retreat into New Jersey had put American forces on the defensive. While Washington was doing everything he could to hold his army together, the British devised a plan to divide the Colonies along the Hudson River. After a promising British start, however, the Saratoga Campaign would grind to a halt before turning into a stunning American victory. The battle rejuvenated the cause of independence and convinced France’s King Louis XVI to officially enter the war in support of the Americans. This critical French alliance would make Saratoga the turning point in the American Revolution.
