On August 16, 1777, the "Green Mountain Boys" fought under General Stark at the Battle of Bennington. It's green field represent their name and the thirteen white stars are a tribute to the thirteen colonies. A notable victory of the Green Mountain Boys under Ethan Allen occurred on the morning of May 10, 1775, when they silently invaded the British-held Fort Ticonderoga and demanded its surrender "in the name of the great Jehovah and the Continental Congress". The captured cannon and mortars were transported across the snow-covered mountains of New England and their installation on the heights over Boston Harbor enabled Washington to force the British to leave the important seaport.
