Historic Documents

The Vermont Historical Society collects papers from Vermont's history. These documents include letters, diaries, brochures and posters. Some of these are "primary sources" that tell us what was happening in Vermont at the time the documents were written. If you have trouble reading the writing, look for the transcription, a typed version of the document.
