Best Answer

The Battle of Saratoga in the American Revolution marked the first time the American patriots were aided in any real way by the French, their newly found allies. Saratoga also marked one of the first and most significant victories for the American rebels. It was after Saratoga that the tide began to turn in the favor of the Americans.
