    The State of VT is trying to get National Historic Landmark status for Hubbardton Battlefield.

    Ft Ti, Mount Independence and of course Saratoga Battlefield have this status. We need help in finding scholars outside the state of VT who will indicate the rear guard action at the Battle of Hubbardton was important. Had St Clair’s army been captured by Burgoyne, there might never have been a win at Saratoga.

    Can suggest you suggest sources for us to contact, in addition to you.

    Please help us.
