Surrender at Saratoga

Surrender at Saratoga
$6.95
Two years into the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), one British general felt



pretty confident that the"rebellion" by the American colonists could easily be put down. His plan-to invade New York State from the British base in Canada and cut off the troublesome New Englanders from their fellow colonists-resulted instead in a major win for the Americans. In addition to guiding readers through the movements of the British and American armies during the Saratoga Campaign and showing how the British defeat at these battles impacted the rest of the war, this issue also introduces some of the key players: John Burgoyne and Barry St. Leger on the British side and Horatio Gates, Daniel Morgan, and Benedict Arnold on the American side. There's an article that describes what life was like for camp followers as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how soldiers survived day-to-day life in the army in the 1700s. And you can read about the Saratoga National Historical Park, where members of the National Park Service work to preserve the story of this pivotal, turning point event in American



history.
