In the Battles of Saratoga, an army that thought it had no chance of losing--the British--eventually lost to an army that thought it had little chance of victory--the Americans. These battles in the middle of a area that seems fairly remote had a ripple effect that sent shock waves across the world, turning a civil uprising into a world war. Not only are the battles called the "turning point of the American Revolution," but have also been called "the most important battle of the last 1000 years."
