* In an incredible election of 1866, two one-armed amputee men ran for Governor and Lt. Governor on a slogan "two good arms between the two of us."
* Vermont was its own country for fourteen years, declaring its independence in June of 1777. The nation printed its own currency, gave all men the right to vote, outlawed slavery, and ran a postal service. The official country name was 'Vermont' as was adopted during a convention in July 1777. The country remained an independent nation two years after Washington became president of the United States. Vermont was finally admitted as the nation's 14th state in 1791.
