Fun Fact: When Vermont Was Its Own Country

Fun facts about Vermont

Even though Vermont and its people fought for independence, and considered themselves Americans, they were not part of the original 13 states. Due to a boundary dispute from New York, Congress failed to recognize Vermont as a state. From 1777-1791 it existed as it’s own republic, but most citizens wished for Vermont to join the union, and they later got their wish when it became the 14th state.
