What Happened In The Battle of Bennington?
The battle was one of the earliest military conflicts of the American Revolutionary War. The event took place on the 16th of August 1777.
The conflict zone was Bennington, Vermont.
Although, rebels were in a weaker position in the early stage; but in the battle, they successfully defeated British forces and caused around 13 times more casualties among them.
This success significantly boosted American rebels’ morale to fight against Red Coats.
At the same time, it also encouraged external powers like France to enter the war for supporting Americans against Great Britain.
