- This book seemed to be as good as John Pell's
autobiography on Allen. I strongly recommend it.
It can be found at the Connecticut Historical
- Holbrook, Stewart H. Ethan Allen. New York: The
Macmillan Company, 1940.
- Holbrook's book was used as sparingly as possible
because he did not use citations. More of his
work was used until I found that his work was
- "Historian Hardy Refutes Scandal on Ethan Allen," Lakeville
Journal 28 august 1958. (There is not a page number
attached to the article)
- This article can be found in the box of clippings,
journal articles, and whatever else the town of
Salisbury has collected on Ethan Allen. This box
is located in the archives room at the Scoville
Public Library, in Salisbury, Connecticut.

Society, 3rd ed. New York: Harper Collins College
- This textbook was instrumental in the description
of Shay's rebellion and defining Republicanism.
- Van deWater, Frederic F. The Reluctant Republic:
Vermont 1724-1791. New York: Cornwall Press, 1941.
- Frederic Van deWater was another author to not use
citations. His book was also used sparingly
because of this. He did however have some
information on the history of Vermont.
