Historic New York? ? ? ? ? One of the most decisive battles in world history ended with the surrender near here of the British army invading from Canada under General "Gentleman Johnny" Burgoyne in 1777. The defeat ended a summer-long campaign by over 7,000 British, Hessian mercenaries, and Indians to capture Albany and then split the colonies in a drive south.
