BATTLE OF SARATOGA:General Burgoyne started to run out of supplies as the war went on. The British and won some battles and the Americans had won some. Benedict Arnold led a charge at the British when another battle broke out. After the Americans forced the British to go back, the soldiers were so tired. The Americans shot at their camp until Burgoyne surrendered his army. This was a turning point in the war because after this battle, other countries believed that the Americans had a chance.

The Battles of Saratoga conclusively decided the fate of British General John Burgoyne's army in the American War of Independence and are generally regarded as a turning point in the war. It was one of the Battles that thought of an amazing battle.
