On Sunday, November 17 at 2:00 pm, Bennington Historical Society presents Shay’s Settlement in Vermont: A story of Revolt and Archaeology.  After fleeing the 1787 uprising in Massachusetts, led by Daniel Shay, many settled in the wilderness of Sandgate, Vermont.  Rediscovered in 1997, the site of this settlement has been studied since 2013.  Stephen Butz, a teacher from New York, has been leading students in exploring the site and talks about their findings.
