The Battle of Bennington
Saturday, March 9
In the summer of 1777, an invading army under British Gen. Burgoyne threatened to capture Albany and to cut off New England from the other rebellious colonies. Victory at Bennington paved the way for victory in the Battles of Saratoga and ultimately in the war itself. Historic Site Assistant David Pitlyk will deliver a presentation on the history of the Battle of Bennington, drawing from contemporary source material and archaeology.
The presentation will also touch on how the battle has been commemorated and interpreted over time.

Explore a cookbook from the library’s collection, potluck style. The March cook book selection will be on reserve at the Information Desk starting on March 1.

At this inaugural meeting, we’ll enjoy taste testing everyone’s dishes and discussing the results, plus gather feedback about how often you’d like the club to meet and what cookbooks you’d be interested in trying out in the future.
