The Green Mountain Boys Statue
The Green Mountain Boys were a militia organization first established in 1770 in the territory between the British provinces of New York and New Hampshire, known as the New Hampshire Grants and later in 1777 as the Vermont Republic (which later became the state of Vermont). Headed by Ethan Allen and members of his extended family, it was instrumental in resisting New York’s attempts to control the territory, over which it had won de jure control in a territorial dispute with New Hampshire.

A great history for Vermont. A very heroic act for the its people back then. Hopefully that this statue always remind its people of their history.
This is a vintage photo that has a lot of history associated with it. The militia is always a photo to behold and learn from
Historical statue that have a deep meaning is what is depicted here. The structure here is looking great
An outstanding work of art! It was definitely sculpted by some real pros!
There is so much detail in the statue. I bet it took a lot of time to sculpt it.
A piece of history preserved. Many thanks for documenting this Tom.
The statue is humongous. I wish I could see it in person.
I am surprised at how life like it looks. It could use a bit more paint though.
This is one very old statue. Probably decades old!
The brilliant blue sky makes for a lovely looking background. Awesome work Thomas!
I can see how this would be a very attractive place for tourists. I might visit some day.
Thanks for describing what the statue represents. I learnt a lot from that.
I love history. Statues like these should be preserved as they are an integral part of that history.
Nowadays we rarely see any new statues being built. I wonder why that is….
I like this type of historical statues, they should be preserved for future generations.
