Vermont State Papers

We anticipate that the manuscript holdings of the State of Vermont will prove invaluable to the project, even if we are only able to provide an index to the majority of information that should be available. Thanks to the kind offices of David E. Michlovitz, of Alexandria, VA, we have a number of interesting documents to start this collection with, most of which have been incorporated into our timeline already.
