Vermont or Vermont (English: Vermont; from French: verts monts, “green hills”, sound file and letter symbols for pronunciation ) is a small state in the United States, located in New England. Its capital is Montpellier, and its largest city is Burlington. Vermont is the only New England state that does not border the Atlantic Ocean.
Geographically, Vermont is of interest mostly with the Green Mountains in the west and Lake Champlain in the northwest. It borders Massachusetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east, New York to the west, and Quebec to the north.
Originally, the lands of Vermont were settled with Native American tribes (Iroquois, Algonquian peoples, and Abnaki). France later laid claim to Vermont, but the present-day state became a British colony after France lost the French and Indian War. For many years it was ruled by the surrounding colonies, which met fierce resistance from the “boys of the Green Mountains”. After American independence following the Revolutionary War, Vermont became the 14th state to join the union.
Known for nature, dairy, and maple syrup, Vermont has long been associated with progressive politics and the Democratic Party.
