An account of the Battle of Hubbardton, Vermont, a ferocious clash between American soldiers who had evacuated Fort Ticonderoga and elements of the British forces detached from Burgoyne's army who pursued them. The Americans were joined by Colonel Seth Warner and his Green Mountain Boys. The British prevailed in a tactical victory, but it proved to be a strategic loss; the Americans lost 30 men while the official British losses were numbered at 183 killed and wounded, yet "Allen stated that British officers confessed to him that they had 300 killed." This "victory" amounted to a weakening of Burgoyne's forces, who were again beaten at the Battle of Bennington the following month; and contributed to his final surrender in October, 1777.
