Ethan Allen

Author Code: AEAX

Born: Jan. 21, 1738 - Litchfield, Connecticut, USA

Died: Feb. 12, 1789 - Burlington, Vermont, USA

Brought up on the frontier, Allen's education was limited. In 1769, he became interested in the New Hampshire Grants, land grants that had been made available by the provisional governor, and purchased land there. Conflicts with residents of New York who claimed rights in the Grants resulted in the formation of the Green Mountain Boys which were led by Allen and which did their best to disrupt and intimidate New York settlers. During the American Revolution, Allen and the Boys, together with Benedict Arnold, captured Fort Ticonderoga from the British in 1775 and subsequently raided Montreal, which failed and led to the capture and imprisonment of Allen. Allen later published his memoir of those years in captivity. Released in 1778, he returned to the Grants, which by now had declared itself independent as the colony of Vermont. For many years Allen was involved in Vermont politics. In 1785, he published Reason: The Only Oracle of Man, a controversial work which attacked Christianity and religion in general. The book was a failure, selling only 200 copies at the time. Allen seems to have suffered a stroke on his way home from visiting with family and died a short time after. His memoir, A Narrative of Colonel Ethan Allen's Captivity (1779), which was very popular had one of the longer sub-titles, even by 18th century standards: Containing His Voyages and Travels. With the Most Remarkable Occurrences Respecting Him and Many Other Continental Prisoners of Observations Written by Himself and Now Published for the Information of the Curious in All Nations.
