Vermont was initially settled during the early 18th century by both the British and French,and conflicts amongst the two nations continued through to the French defeat into the French and Indian War, after which the land was ceded to England. During the American Revolution, Vermont declared independence separately from the original 13 colonies, although the Continental Congress refused to recognize it. Vermont was finally admitted into the union given that 14th state in 1790, after 14 years as an independent republic. The name of the state is derived from "montagne verte,” French forgreen mountain, giving rise to the state’s “Green Mountain State” nickname. Today, Vermont’s mountains are a well known destination for skiers and snowboarders. It's the country’s leading producer of maple syrup and it is your home associated with the popular Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
