On August 3, 1927, the US Post Office issued two stamps honoring significant events from the Revolutionary War in 1777.
One of the stamps is the Vermont Sesquicentennial stamp. The stamp honors the Battle of Bennington and pictures a Green Mountain Boy. The other stamp honors the Saratoga Campaign and pictures the surrender of General Burgoyne. It also honors the Battle of Bennington, with an inscription on the right-hand side.
