Southwest Vermont, from Bennington to the Manchester area, played a very significant role in the winning of the Revolutionary War. Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys planned their capture of Fort Ticonderoga (the first Colonists’ victory) from here and defeated the British in the Battle of Bennington which kept supplies from the British who then surrendered at Saratoga, NY, which was the turning point in the War.
Surprisingly, Vermont also has many ties to the Civil War. For instance, Vermont lost more people in the Civil War than any other state in the Union. Every generation of Abraham Lincoln’s descendants lived or visited the Manchester and Dorset areas. Some Lincolns were interred here. Tombstones for Gettysburg came from this area and more.
