Historian to talk about how diversity affected Revolutionary troops

ORWELL — Historian and site interpreter Paul Andriscin will be at Mount Independence State Historic Site on Sunday, Aug. 12, to talk about “Ethnic and Cultural Diversity at Mount Independence.” The program is at 2 p.m.
This talk looks at how a rag-tag force from six states and Vermont managed to maintain the Northern American Army here during the American Revolution. They faced lack of supplies, disease, starvation, bad weather conditions, and having to overcome prejudices against their fellow soldiers. Why was there so much distrust and hatred between the troops? What forces divided them and what kept them together?
The event is included in the regular admission fee of $5 for adults and free for children under 15. While there you can visit the museum and walk any or all of the six miles of trails on the over 300-acre site. Call 802-948-2000 for more information.
