Ethan Allen in Council with the Green Mountain Boys


The Green Mountain Boys were a militia group formed by Ethan Allen and others to help protect settlers in the New Hampshire Grants in land disputes with New York. Allen and the Green Mountain Boys led the capture of Fort Ticonderoga on May 10, 1775. The Green Mountain Boys would eventually be mustered into the Continental Army, under the command of Seth Warner.
