Best Answer

During the American Revolution, the battle that convinced the French (and other Europeans) that the American colonists could defeat the British, and were thus worthy of support, occurred at Saratoga, New York, in 1777. Actually consisting of several battles, the decisive American victory led almost immediately to an alliance with France and the timely reception of material support.
