Description

When the Minutemen assembled at Lexington and Concord, did they know that they were firing the first shots in a struggle that would lead to the dissolution of the union between Great Britain and her American Colonies? Most historic records indicate that most rebels hoped for reconciliation with the Crown, yet the purpose of the struggle changed.

What is the historical distinction between a revolution and a rebellion? While on the surface, they may often describe the same acts, the results of the actions often makes the distinction. Museum Director Daniel O'Neil explores the motivations behind many of the players in Vermont's Revolutionary Struggle, and how they changed from rebels to revolutionaries.
