From the Publisher...

The 1st Edition of GMT's award-winning Saratoga: Turning Point of the American Revolution portrayed the tense struggle in front of Bemis Heights that became known as The Battle of Freeman's Farm. The upcoming 2nd edition will include that original battle PLUS it will include counters and rules to allow gamers to model the possibility of a renewed British attack on the next day. NEW "Next Day Scenario" Information:

The Battle of Freeman's Farm was a marginal British victory but a strategic stalemate. American General Gates, in superior numbers and on prepared ground, was still astride the only road to Albany. Burgoyne saw no real flexibility in his orders. He had to press the attack and intended to do so the very next day.

Wilkinson, Gates' Deputy Adjutant General, later testified, "If Burgoyne had attacked the American camp on the 20th or 21st as he originally intended, his force would have enabled him to lead a column of 5,000 rank and file against our left, where the ground was most favorable to his approach, whilst a feint on our right, by the plain near the river, would have kept every man at his station within our extensive lines, and under such advantages on his side, it is highly probable he would have gained a decisive victory."

As it happened, Burgoyne was convinced by his staff to delay the offensive for 24 hours during which time Clinton's coded message arrived from New York. An imperfect reading of that message suggested Clinton was on his way with a relief column when in fact all he planned was a diversion against the Hudson Highlands. Burgoyne decided to suspend forward movement, dig in, and wait for Clinton. Another one of history's "lost opportunities...."
