Ethan Allen Homestead Enrichment Program: Ethan Allen, Vermont's Founding Father? 02/21/2016

Always controversial, Ethan Allen still inspires lively debate over his importance to the founding of the Fourteenth State. Was he a brawling, land-hungry drunkard or a persistent effective force in breaking away the Green Mountains from the grips of New York oligarchs? Just how should we think of the man who captured a British fort, languished in an English dungeon, and ended his days in a modest farmhouse in Burlington's intervale? Presented by Willard Sterne Randall, Distinguished Scholar in History and Professor Emeritus, Champlain College.
