Bennington Battle Monument

 

On August 16, 1777, British forces sent by Gen'l Burgoyne to seize supplies at Bennington were turned back by New Englanders

under Gen'l John Stark and Vermont's Col. Seth Warner.  This 306 foot commemorative shaft planned 100 years later, was 

dedicated in 1891.  In 1953 it was taken over, restored and an elevator installed by the Vermont Historic Sites Commission which

now administers it for the State.
