The Green Mountain Boys was originally a militia organization first established in the late 1760s in the territory between British provinces of New York and New Hampshire. Headed by Ethan Allen and his extended family, it was instrumental in resisting New York’s attempts to control the territory, over which Allen had won de jure control in a territorial dispute with New Hampshire. In early June 1775, Allen and his then subordinate Seth Warner induced the Continental Congress at Philadelphia to create a Continental Army ranger regiment. The Green Mountain Boys disbanded more than a year before Vermont declared independence in 1777 from Great Britain. The Vermont Republic operated for 14 years before being admitted in 1791 to the United States as the 14th state.
