Willey,pp, March 23,Patrick Henry told the Second Virginia Convention in his famous "give me liberty, or give me death! The second battle Bennington was successful in stopping the British from taking supplies, especially arms, stored at that beautiful Vermont town at the foot of the Green Mountains.
Both battles were won by patriots of whom "None had a distinctive uniform except the Rangers -- a body of Davy Crockett men [The Green Mountain Boys, minus Ethan Allen who had been in a London, England, prison since ] dressed in frocks with green facings"64 and most of these "soldiers" as well as those at Charlestown Heights had come from New Hampshire -- over half at Charlestown Heights Bunker Hill and approximately two-thirds at Bennington.
His orders came from New Hampshire, an autonomous colony.
Stark, like Ethan Allen of Vermont, was an American Revolutionary with serious concerns about possible indignities by the new yet-to-be-formed government, not just British abuses.
When Stark arrived at Bennington he formulated strategy with Colonel Seth Warner of what had recently been called "New Connecticut" by the inhabitants.
Parsons, "Capture of Fort William and Mary. VII, Boston,p Ward, and did not reach Charlestown Neck until the redoubt was taken. I was led at first to suppose that New Hampshire had not more than nine hundred in the field, when the British advanced to the attack, out of fifteen hundred then on the ground; but the evidence I have discovered and analyzed shows that when the British attacked there were less than five hundred of the original party of Prescott from Massachusetts and Connecticut, with twice that number from New Hampshire, ready to receive the foe" and p They were aware that the first recorded "sustained armed resistance" in the colonies had occurred more than five years earlier when a British posse from Albany failed in an attempt to capture and retain Remember Baker who, like Seth Warner at the time, was a Captain of the Green Mountain Boys.
The event took place at Baker's East Arlington, Vermont, mill and home, the morning of March 22, Without "intelligence" they would likely lose and he wisely relied upon these Green Mountain Boys. Colonel Seth Warner, former confidant of imprisoned Lieutenant Colonel Ethan Allen, could be trusted both for commitment to the cause of liberty and information of the battlefield and enemy positions.
Such was the climate in which Joseph Smith, Sr. Not only had ten Vermonters organized and chased the Albany posse to free Remember Baker in before they reached the Hudson River ferry at what is now Troy, New York, these and others, under the democratically elected leadership of Ethan Allen, captured Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point in May and thereafter engaged the British forces on Lake Champlain -- all within less than a month after the famous skirmishes at Lexington and The North Bridge.
The capture of Ticonderoga provided the Americans with approximately seventy 70 tons of large guns. Filkins, III, self published,pp8, 9, 16, 18, Though the Patriots fought well at Charlestown Heights, the British remained.
On the night of March 4,the Ticonderoga guns, transported with celebrations in many of the towns these rebels entered during that extraordinary effort, were placed on Dorchester Heights near Boston Harbor.
Somehow the British had no knowledge of this transport or lacked the ability to stop it. If their intelligence was inadequate, it was probably because the citizens in the towns wanted to keep them from knowing. The British, after all, had captured their hero, Colonel Ethan Allen, on September 25,in his attempt to win Montreal.Here’s a historical cipher mystery from that I found out about yesterday (apologies for being so slow on the uptake).
