The Battle of Hubbardton
July 7,1777

By James P. Millard

While certainly not one of the most important engagements of the American Revolution, the Battle of Hubbardton nonetheless deserves its share of recognition. The brave soldiers who fought here, whether American, British, or German, should be remembered...

Photos: clockwise from top left- The simple monument erected in 1859 commemorating the battle, it is believed to be located at the site where the British troops buried Colonel Ebenezer Francis.

A view back towards the stone wall from the Monument Hill battlefield. It was here that the battle continued after the American troops finally pulled back away from the wall.

Taken from the approximate location of the Selleck cabin, this view North shows the Castleton road on the right. The battle was waged from Monument Hill on the left to the steep mountains out of view to the right. Just across the road is the place where the Americans took up their final position before scattering into the mountains to the East.

The view south- Castleton road on the left. The fenced in area marks the location of the Selleck cabin where the wounded were taken. It was just south of this location that Lindsey's detachment of Light Infantry were sent in the attempt to flank the Americans.
