Bennington Battlefield State Historic Site

Description

Bennington Battlefield is in New York, not Vermont, and is the location of a Revolutionary War battle between the British forces of Colonel Friedrich Baum and American forces under Brigadier General John Stark and Colonel Seth Warner. This battle was fought in August 1777 in a British effort to capture American storehouses in Bennington and restock their depleting provisions. The British forces had underestimated the strength of their enemy and most of their men were killed or taken prisoner. Facilities at the site include game fields, 276 acres, interpretive panels, information room, and restrooms.
