Lighter Lyr Add: The Green Mountaineer (6) RE: Lyr Add: The Green Mountaineer 24 Mar 21


Whittier's poem, of course, has nothing to do with Fort Ticonderoga or 1775. It's not about defying the British; it's about "defying the world." I think I detect the stylistic influence of Walter Scott - a good thing IMO.

I wonder where the tune comes from.

The Vermont Republic of 1777-1791 was officially unrecognized by any nation - including the United States.
