Mount Independence – the book

In the early years of the Revolutionary War, the American Army was retreating after the catastrophic failure of the invasion of Canada. The troops were decimated by disease. With a superior force of fresh British troops collecting at the border, the patriots needed some place to make a stand. They chose a rugged piece of the Vermont shoreline directly opposite Fort Ticonderoga, and they called it Mount Independence.
