Battle for Vermont

Susie Francy

Grade 11, Leland and Gray High School, Townsend, VT

"This piece is set in 1790, when America had become an independent country but Vermont had not yet become an independent state. It starts off beautifully, like what one would hear while taking a casual stroll through the countryside. However, New York and New Hampshire soon realize the potential of this unclaimed land and begin its pursuit. After an intense war for the land, Vermont remains unclaimed and becomes independent, free of the reign of an outside force."
