About Colonel Seth Warner

Colonels Seth Warner and Ebenezer Francis, in charge of the rearguard of the American force retreating after the fall of Fort Ticonderoga, remained overnight at Hubbardton without taking proper security measures for their encampment. The British attacked very early the next morning, July 7, 1777, and brought on a short but very severe fight. The Americans scattered with instructions to reassemble at Manchester. Francis was killed. The British advance was delayed, but the cost was exorbitant. This was the only battle of the War for Independence fought on Vermont soil. The site is included in a 50-acre State park.
