Britain: We're going to give the land between Lake Champlain and the Connecticut River to New York.
Green Mountain Boys: But excuse us, we are entitled to this land. We have land titles from New Hampshire if proof is needed.
We have the right to keep this land!
We need to stop the New Yorkers from settling here. This is our land that we are entitled to.
Attempted Law Enforcement (New York)
This has to end.
It's time to enforce laws on these barbaric Green Mountain Boys.
The British gave land between Lake Champlain and the Connecticut River to New York settlers. The Green Mountain Boys are angry because they have land titles from New Hampshire giving them ownership and entitlement to this land.
Come men! Take over the and show them who is superior!! They cannot stop us.
They're here, they're attacking!! Places now!
The Green Mountain Boys got together for a meeting to stop the New York settlers from settling in Vermont, so that the people with land titles from New Hampshire could keep their land.
We have succeeded in our mission. We are now the official army of Vermont, and here Sir. Seth Warner will be bestowed the position of our leader.
I'm honored to be the leader of this fine army.
New York comes together to decide on enforcing laws on The Green Mountain Boys. But, The Green Mountain Boys and their followers end up beating all of the cases.
Independence At Last
We're finally our own independent state!
What a relief this is.
Now The Revolution has started and The Green Mountain Boys have gone North and attacked the British Fort Ticonderoga.
After The Green Mountain Boys succeeded in the Battle of Fort Ticonderoga, they became the army of Vermont, and Seth Warner was given the position of their leader.
In 1791 Vermont became an independent state, and the 14th state in The United States of America.
