Finding the Green Mountain Boys – July 14

On Sunday, July 14, 2019, at 2:00 pm, members of the Green Mountain Boys Project will be speaking at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont, about their special project. For the past three years they have been researching the Green Mountain Boys of Vermont. This will be an illustrated talk with plenty of time for questions.

The group has focused for several years on the town of Shoreham, looking for the gravestones of Green Mountain Boys and clearing a cemetery. Their new project is based in Orwell. Find out how you can get involved.

The program is cosponsored by the Shoreham Historical Society. The program is included in regular admission ($5.00 adults/free under 15).

It is open daily, 10 am to 5 pm, through October 13. Mount Independence is a National Historic Landmark and one of the best-preserved Revolutionary War archaeological sites in the country.
