Best Answer

During the American War of Independence, the British planned to isolate and then re-occupy the New England colonies in a variety of ways. Most decisively, they invaded upstate New York in the middle of 1777, aiming to drive a wedge between the New England colonies and the rest of the "rebel" territory. Their campaign came to a halt with defeats in several battles around Saratoga, NY, in the autumn of 1777.

What was the significance of general john burgoyne?

He was a British general who presented a new plan of victory to help the British conquer New York in the American Revolutionary War. He said that if British troops cut off New England from the other colonies, the war would soon be over. He wanted 3 British armies to march into Albany from different directions, then they would attack from all sides and the Rebels would surrender. Using Burgoyne's theory, General Howe captured Philadelphia. In the end, despite rebel obstacles such as cut down trees and dams, Burgoyne recaptured Fort Ticonderoga. But, the Green Mountain Boys attacked British soldiers that were sent to find food and horses. Then the Green Mountain Boys hurried to New York, surrounded the British, and trapped them without food or horses. Eventually Burgoyne had to surrender.
