Excerpt from History of the New Netherlands, Province of New York, and State of New York, Vol. 2 of 2: To the Adoption of the Federal Constitution

Capture of Ticonderoga - Ethan Allen - Arnold - Montgomery - His letters.

The controversies between New York and New Hampshire have been noticed in preceding pages, but when the great struggle between the colonies and Great Britain had arrived at a crisis which superseded in the minds of the leading men of New York all other considerations, Tryon was placed in the position of an enemy to both the contending parties. The contest between England and America had another effect upon this quarrel for acres: many of those claiming under New York became open enemies to the general cause of liberty, and of course their influence in urging the claims of that province to the New Hampshire grants ceased.

As soon as open hostilities had commenced at Lexington, certain persons at Hartford formed a design upon the fortress of Ticonderoga, and being joined by Ethan Allen and others of Massachusetts, they turned their thoughts and steps to Bennington, where they knew men were to be found ready to start upon a dangerous enterprize. On their arrival, a council was called, and Allen assumed, or was appointed, the leader. He despatched scouts to the northward to cut off communication between Canada and the object at which they aimed, and then marched to Castleton, where they arrived on the evening of the 7th of May, 1775.
