The Battle of Trenton was a small but great war, with the Patriots defeating the British. This served as a great confidence boost for America.
How could this possibly happen?
Not long after the battle of Trenton, the Battle of Princeton followed. After the Patriots won the battle and gained control of New Jersey, the British fled to New York. The Americans really began to think they might win the war after this battle.
New Jersey is ours!
Maybe we should head to New York...
The battle of Saratoga was very important to the Revolutionary War. After the British fled to New York, the battle was fought in Saratoga, where the Americans won. Not only did they win, but the British surrendered.
