What is Bennington Battle Day?

Bennington Battle Day dates back in 1777 during the Revolutionary War in North America between British and American troops. Led by the German colonel Friedrich Baum, the 800 soldiers of the British soldiers were very optimistic about defeating the American militia and plunder their military supplies. The American troops were led by Colonel Seth Warner and his green mountain boys who strategized and attacked the British from several directions wounding their leader fatally. The British resulted in running away, and they surrendered shortly afterward. In the end, the British had lost 207 soldiers, with 700 captured against 30 Americans deaths and 42 wounded. Although the battle happened in NewYork, it was given the name Bennington considering that the British aimed to raid the American's supply depot of the weapons and ammunition in Bennington Vermont. Today, a monument towers at about 306 feet in Bennington's city as a memorable icon of the Bennington Battle Day.
