The Battle Of Bemis Heights
The Battle of Saratoga was a series of battles between the British and the Colonists during the American Revolutionary War. The Hessians also aided the British during these battle to get money. The two battles were caused by the British. They tried to take control of more parts of land, which angered the colonists and forced them to go into battle in order to protect what was rightfully theirs.
On September 19th, 1777 the British and Hessians met up with the French on the Freeman's farm, located in Albany in Saratoga County, New York. The British were lead by General John Burgoyne while the colonists were lead by Daniel Morgan. The British were going down south to gain control of more land when they were attacked by the colonists. When the Hessians heard about the British losing, they rushed to the battle and aided the British. This caused the British to win, even though more British soldiers died than the colonists.
