New York City remained under British occupation for the remainder of the war. It became their headquarters. After 1777 Washington was able to fortify the Hudson River and prevent the British from striking out from New York. The British withdrew from the city after the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Michael Montagne There was also the Battle of Brooklyn. In the state of New York there was also the battle of Saratoga, which was the turning point of the revolution. The defeat at Saratoga stopped a british invasion from Canada, kept the British from dividing the colonies, and convinced the French to openly support the American cause. Interestingly Benedict Arnold was the hero of that battle, and another significant event which ocurred in NY state was his attempt to deliver West Point and control of the Hudson to the British. There was also Fort Ticonderoga, the capture of which allowed the Americans to acquire cannon which played a key role in driving the British out of Boston. There was the Battle of Bennigton as well.
