Inscription. The only battle fought on Vermont soil during the American Revolution took place on these fields. Viewed as a rear guard action, this battle was important because it slowed the progress of the British and German pursuers long enough for the main body of the American Army to escape during their retreat from the forts at Ticonderoga and Mount Independence on Lake Champlain.

Starting from where you are now, follow the path to your right to the crest of the hill. There you will find the first in a series of signs that identify important landmarks and explain the action that unfolded here on July 7, 1777. From that point, follow the path to find more signs as you walk the battlefield. Enjoy your walk.

Hubbardton Battlefield is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is managed by the State of Vermont, Division for Historic Preservation.
