During the summer of 1777, British forces devised a two prong attack intended to crush American forces and put an end to their revolutionary ideas. Looking to isolate New England from the remainder of the colonies, General John Burgoyne lead his troops from Montréal into New York State. Burgoyne planned to meet with Lieutenant Colonel Barry St. Leger's army coming in from the west. After recapturing Fort Ticonderoga, Burgoyne's supply line was stretched too thin, and made a move to seize American supplies at Bennington, Vermont.
