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.
Mount Independence: The Enduring Legacy of a Unique Historic Place is the first book to explore the history of this important but under-appreciated Revolutionary War site.
