Why the title GreenMtnBoyz ?
The Green mountain Boys of Vermont was the first engagement in the Revolutionary War . It was Ethan Allan and his cousin Seth Warner that led this MILITIA of "guerilla" hunters , with their own "flintlocks" dressed in green buckskins . Originally gathered to fight for the New Hampshire Land Patents . They were sent on the very first mission to take Fort Ticonderoga . Of course it wasn't a fierce fight at all , they literally caught the Redcoats with their pants down . They assembed all the artillary and guns for the Continental Army . Thus being a very pivotal point in the Revolution for supplying General George Washington with his first cannons of war .
