—Freedom Fighter —

Jonathan Peckham Miller was born in Randolph and educated at Orange County Grammar School close to this spot. When he fought in the Greek Revolution for freedom from the Turks in the 1820s, he was known internationally as "the American Daredevil." Jonathan returned to fight for the freedom of slaves in his own country as a member of the Vermont legislature and a champion of the abolitionist movement. An orphan himself, he adopted a Greek orphan, Lucas, who later became a U.S. Representative from Wisconsin.
