Tenth Amendment Center: The Struggle for American Independence: The Siege of Boston

In this episode, I cover two major military events in 1775 and 1776 that altered the course of the conflict. First, I cover the capture of Fort Ticonderoga by a joint force of Vermont militia, known as the Green Mountain Boys, and a Massachusetts militia force commanded by the infamous Benedict Arnold. What the Americans lacked in resources and training, they made up for in good fortune. The artillery at Ticonderoga proved instrumental in pushing the British out of Boston when a young prodigy named Henry Knox persistently worked over the winter to haul the guns to that city.
