Re-enactment of the Battle of Saratoga
The Turning Point of the American Revolution
The British Side

The British encampment consisted of approximately fifteen tents. Their camp was well equipped. It was harder for them to receive supplies and instructions because of the immense distance between the fighting and the mother country.

The British during the "Revolutionary War" were trying to keep their tentative hold on the American Colonies. They were considered the superior army, and their navy bested the American one by far. King George the Third was the monarch of England at this point in time. When the Americans wrote the Declaration of Independence in 1776, they accused him of the wrongs, and not the British parliament.
