Modern History of Vermont
The Republic of Vermont, although not recognized by the United States of America (largely due to the opposition of the state of New York), existed as a sovereign state for fourteen years. Over the years, some local politicians (including Ethan Allen) tried to negotiate the inclusion of Vermont in British Canada, but most residents wanted to join the union of American states.
The desire of Vermont to become the fourteenth state of the United States is clearly expressed in the state symbols of those years: fourteen stars are depicted on the banner of the “Green Mountains Boys”, the motto Stella quarta decima(“Fourteenth star” in Latin) was minted on the coins of the republic, and on the seal (coat of arms) was depicts a pine tree with fourteen branches.
Finally, on March 4, 1791, Congress decided to include Vermont in the United States. Thomas Chittenden, who previously headed the government of the Republic of Vermont, became the first governor of the state.
Vermont became the first state admitted to the Union after the thirteen founding colonies. “Free” Vermont served as a kind of “counterweight” to slave-owning Kentucky, which became the fifteenth US state on June 1, 1792.
In the first decades of statehood , the population of Vermont grew rapidly, faster than in any other US state (from 85,000 in 1790 to 218,000 in 1810). Most of the state’s new residents were settlers from other New England states.
The war between the United States and Great Britain in 1812-1815 was very unpopular in the state, since trade with Canada traditionally played an important role in the economy of Vermont. During the war years, smuggling flourished across the border with the Canadian province of Quebec. At the same time, the threat of an invasion by British troops from the north was eliminated only after the victory of the Americans in the Battle of Lake Champlain.
