Ethan Allen’s Capture of Fort Ticonderoga and the Battle of Bennington @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes historian Richard Smith to tell the thrilling story about Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys leaving Bennington and traveling north through Manchester to Fort Ticonderoga. The fort was then captured on May 10, 1775 for “America’s First Victory.” Two years later in 1777, British General Burgoyne came south from Canada, recaptured Fort Ticonderoga causing the Americans to evacuate and come through Manchester. On his way to Saratoga, Burgoyne ran out of supplies and sent a contingent to capture the stores at Bennington. The resulting Battles of Bennington and Saratoga resulted in the turning point of the Revolution because the French entered on the American side. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
