August 1777

To impede a British invasion from Canada into eastern New York, the New Hampshire legislature on July 19, 1777, commissioned John Stark of Derryfield to recruit and lead a force of 1500 New Hampshire militiamen. At Charlestown's Fort No. 4, forces were assembled with food, medical supplies and military stores. On August 3, they marched west and in the famed Battle of Bennington on August 16, they defeated the combined British-German forces, thereby achieving a major turning point of the war.
