August 16, 1777, British forces sent by Gen'l Burgoyne to seize
supplies at Bennington were turned back by New Englanders
Gen'l John Stark and Vermont's Col. Seth Warner. This 306 foot
commemorative shaft planned 100 years later, was
in 1891. In 1953 it was taken over, restored and an elevator
installed by the Vermont Historic Sites Commission which
administers it for the State.
