Saratoga: Turning Point of America’s Revolutionary War

Book,SaratogaThis book tells the gripping story of the Northern Campaign of the American Revolution, with voices from the American and British sides.  The book includes the important role of Mount Independence, and battles of Hubbardton and Bennington. The American Revolution is the most significant event in the nation's past, and the British surrender at Saratoga was the turning point of that struggle. In the summer of 1777 - two years after Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill, twelve months after the brave Declaration of Independence - the British launched an invasion from Canada under General John Burgoyne. It was the campaign that was supposed to end the rebellion, but it resulted instead in a series of battles that changed America's history and that of the world.
