The two Battles of Saratoga in 1777 were the key battles in which the Americans won a victory over the British. As a result, British general John Burgoyne (he led the British during the revolution) had to retreat. This gave the French the confidence to join the war against the British and to sign treaties of alliance and trade with the American colonists. The new allies agreed to continue the fight until the colonies became independent.
