Mount Independence plans history hike for Sept. 3

ORWELL — September is Vermont Archaeology Month, as part of the month’s activities Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell is running a “hike into history” on Sunday, Sept. 3. The tour runs from 1-3 p.m.
Long-time site staff Paul Andriscin and Elsa Gilbertson will lead the hike, which focuses on locations and sites on the Mount that tell some of the story of 1777 — 240 years ago. Learn about the southern batteries built by the Americans in June, as they prepared for British invasion; the times of early July when the Americans decided to withdraw; the following British and German occupation; and the stirring days of September when the Americans tried to take back the Mount from the British.
