Moses Robinson and the Founding of Vermont

In this full-length biography, Moses Robinson and the Founding of Vermont, Superior Court judge, Robert A. Mello restores Moses Robinson to his rightful place as one of the most significant figures in the founding of Vermont. Robinson was a leader of the revolt against New York, one of Vermont's agents to Congress in charge of negotiating statehood, the architect of Vermont's legal system, and served as the state's first chief justice, governor for a year, and then as its first U.S. senator. This book invokes new thoughts about Vermont's complicated beginnings.
