Journey back to the Spring of 1775, when Bennington County, Vermont, was no more than the wild frontier of the northern territory. It was from here that the first victory of the American Revolution was won, when Patriot Ethan Allen led the famed Green Mountain Boys to raid and capture towering Fort Ticonderoga from the British. Two years later, the British were again defeated at the Battle of Bennington, suffering two hundred casualties and the staggering capture of more than seven hundred soldiers by another Patriot, John Stark. Dick Smith takes readers through the famed covered bridges, historic taverns and quaint villages of Bennington County that in another life played a vital role in leading our country toward independence.
