The Abenaki and Mount Independence
In the American Revolution & as First Inhabitants

Orwell, VT—Wes “Red Hawk” Dikeman of Ticonderoga, New York, will be coming to the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont, on Saturday, July 3, 2010, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm to share his extensive knowledge about the Abenaki connections to Mount Independence in the American Revolution and as first inhabitants.  Enjoy an informal afternoon with Red Hawk, and a special discussion at 2:00 p.m.

Dikeman, a riveting storyteller, has been studying and interpreting this history for many years.  He often takes part as a reenactor in the annual Revolutionary War living history weekends at the Hubbardton Battlefield and Mount Independence.  He will show some of his artifacts, as well as Revolutionary War attire and gear.   Native Americans have had a very long history at Mount Independence, with chert quarries for making stone tools and then participating in the American Revolution. 
Mount Independence, a National Historic Landmark, is one of the nation’s most significant Revolutionary War sites.  Admission is $5.00 for adults and free for children under 15, and includes a visit to the museum and access to all the trails.

The site is located nearly the end of Mount Independence Road, six miles west of the intersections of Vermont Routes 22A and 73 near Orwell village; carefully follow the signs.  Regular hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily through October 12.    Call 802-948-2000 for more information.
