Hear about the American Revolution at Mount Independence talk this Saturday

ORWELL — On Saturday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m., historian and site interpreter Paul Andriscin offers an illustrated talk about the American Revolution happenings of 1777 at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont.
What was going on outside of Mount Independence 240 years ago, as the British under Lt. Gen. John Burgoyne headed toward Saratoga, New York? Learn about the events on Long Island and New York City, and British Gen. William Howe’s effort to capture Philadelphia. Did these factors lead to the failure of Burgoyne’s plan to split off New England from the rest of the United States? Come find out.
The talk is included in the regular site admission of $5.00 for adults and free for children under 15. Call 802-948-2000 for more information.
