Federated state of the Northeastern USA, 24,900 km², 623,908 residents (2006
estimate), 25 residents/km², capital: Montpelier. Borders: New
Hampshire (E), Massachusetts (S), New York (W); Canada (N).
The territory is crossed from N to S by the Green Mountains chain (Mount
Mansfield, 1339 m), while the south-western sector is affected by the Taconic
Range, parallel to the Green Mountains but less elevated (Mount Equinox, 1180
m). Towards W and NW the mountainous reliefs slope down into the lowlands
bordering the eastern shore of Lake Champlain; to E extends a series of
alteterre that gently decline towards the Connecticut valley, the most important
river that interests the region, although only marginally. The other major
waterways descend towards E, flowing into Connecticut, tributary of the Atlantic
ocean, or towards W, thus flowing into the Champlain, the long lake basin
divided between Vermont and New York State. Main economic resources are
agriculture (cereals, apples, potatoes, fodder), breeding (cattle, poultry) and
forest and subsoil exploitation (granite, marble, asbestos, talc); the
industries, developed in the food, textile, wood, paper and cellulose sectors,
are located in the capital and in the cities of Barre,
Bennington, Burlington and Rutland.
The first permanent English settlement in the region dates back to 1724 with
the construction of Fort Dunner. Contested between the colonies of New Hampshire
and New York, Vermont proclaimed itself a state in 1777, during the war of
independence. In this it played an important role; the conquest of the
Ticonderoga fortress on Lake Champlain (May 1775) was the first act of war by
the Americans. In its Constitution of 1777, Vermont was the first state to
abolish slavery and generalize male suffrage. In 1791 Vermont ratified the
Federal Constitution and on March 4 of the same year he was admitted to the
Union: the first new state after the original thirteen. During the civil war,
which fought under the flags of the feds, he fought valiantly. Of conservative
