The Capture of Ticonderoga - L. E. Chittenden. The essence of this thesis is whether or not Benedict Arnold planned and participated in the capture of Ticonderoga, or whether the honor belongs solely to Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys. This nice little volume incorporates a paper which was read before the Vermont Historical Society at a special meeting of its members in 1872. Well annotated, many of the letters and documents referred to in the text are reprinted in the appendix. (1872), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 132 pp.
