Windsor Vermont

Vermont Constitution Adopted

FLess than a year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, another new Republic was taking shape. Delegates from the newly independent Republic of Vermont gathered at a tavern in Windsor to adopt a constitution. The Vermont constitution was far reaching - the first to prohibit slavery, establish universal voting rights for all males and authorize a public school system. The constitution guided the Republic for 14 years until 1791, when Vermont was admitted to the Union as the fourteenth state.
