Breeding Radicals: The Importation, Refinement, and Exportation of Social Conflict in Early Vermont (1761 – 1861)

Present-day Vermont has a reputation for offering a peaceful break from the hectic stress of discord elsewhere. However, Vermont’s history doesn’t align with this perception.

In this lecture, Philip Crossman looks at the turmoil of early Vermont and examines how political, cultural, religious, and personal contentions were imported from older colonies, modified in Vermont, and then exported elsewhere.
