On the night of October 8, Burgoyne began his retreat northward. At Saratoga (Schuylerville) his army was surrounded by the Americans. After a week of siege, Burgoyne surrendered on October 17, 1777, by the terms of the Convention of Saratoga.

American victory at Saratoga proved to be the turning point of the Revolution. It encouraged France and other European powers to take up arms against England and to aid the American cause.
