Allen, Ira. The Natural and Political History of the State of Vermont, One of the United States of America; to Which Is Added an Appendix Containing Answers to Sundry Queries Addressed to the Author. Rutland, Vt: C. E. Tuttle Co, 1969.
While Ira Allen did not witness all the accounts in his book, he was at the center of most of the founding activities of the State of Vermont. This should be the first book read by those interested in the founding of Vermont as a State.
