Only Battlefield On Vermont SoilHere on July 7, 1777 a successful rearguard action by Colonel Seth Warner's Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire troops ended British pursuit under Generals Frazer and Reldesel. Thus, General St. Claire's American army, retreating from Fort Ticonderoga and Mount Independence, was saved to fight near Bennington and Saratoga. Burgoyne's 1777 drive to divide the colonies, first resisted at Hubbardton, ended in defeat at Saratoga.
