HUBBARDTON SETS VERMONT DAYS ACTIVITIES

HUBBARDTON, Vt. - The Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site in
Hubbardton is offering two special programs for Vermont Days
weekend-June 12 and 13, when admission to all Vermont State Parks and
state-owned historic sites is free of charge. 

On Saturday, June 12, at 9:30 a.m., join naturalists Doug Blodgett and
John Gobeille from the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife and
historians on a rural ramble through the fields and woods of the
Hubbardton Battlefield. Learn about wildlife habitat, plants and
trees, and the traces of history on this historic landscape.  Wear
sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.

On Sunday, June 13, at 2:00 p.m., historian, author, and Center for Research
on Vermont member Ida Washington of Weybridge, Vermont, will speak on
"Reviving The Green Mountain Boys," the classic history of Vermont's
Revolutionary War heroes written in 1838 by Judge Daniel Pierce Thompson.
Washington and her daughter, Carol E. Washington, updated this book to make
these fascinating tales more accessible for today's readers.  Ida Washington
has written a number of books, including Carleton's Raid and Brave Enough,
the story of a Revolutionary boy, and a biography of Dorothy Canfield
Fisher.  The Revolutionary War books are available in the museum shop.

The Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site is located on Monument Hill
Road six miles east of VT Route 30 in Hubbardton or seven miles north of
