Doing His Best by Elihu Burritt
The Battle of Bennington was fought on August 16th, 240 years ago, during America’s Revolutionary War. The British were headed for a weapons cache in Old Bennington, Vermont, where a monument now stands; although, the battle was fought in New York. This story suggests the outcome could’ve been different, had not one boy done his part–his best. The day is marked for celebration in Vermont, as Bennington Battle Day.
