DescriptionThe State of Vermont
"Freedom and Unity"

On March 4, 1791, Vermont became the 14th State of the Union.

Vermont is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States of America.
The state ranks 45th by total area, and 43rd by land area at 9,250 square miles (24,000 km²),
and has a population of 608,827, making it the second least populous state (second only to
Wyoming). The only New England state with no coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, Vermont
is notable for the Green Mountains running north to south and Lake Champlain which makes
up 50% of Vermont's western border.

Originally inhabited by Native American tribes (Abenaki, and Iroquois), the territory that is now
Vermont was claimed by France but became a British possession after France's defeat in the
French & Indian War. For many years, the surrounding colonies disputed control of the area,
especially New Hampshire and New York. Settlers who held land titles granted by these
colonies were opposed by the Green Mountain Boys militia, which eventually prevailed in
creating an independent state. Vermont became the first state to join (the original 13 states of)
the United States after a 14-year period of independence during and after the Revolutionary
War as the independent Vermont Republic.
