The Battle of Hubbardton was the only Revolutionary War battle fought in Vermont. On the morning of July 7, 1777, American soldiers fought a rear guard action to prevent the British army from overtaking the larger American force retreating from Mount Independence and Fort Ticonderoga.

In the end, the death toll was 50 British, 10 German mercenaries and 41 Americans.

The Battlefield is a Vermont Historic Site, and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
