Permanent Must-see Exhibits
Hubbardton Battle: American Rebels Stem the Tide, July 7, 1777
This permanent exhibit tells the story of the Battle of Hubbardton on July 7, 1777, placing it in the larger context of the Saratoga Campaign and the Revolutionary War. Recounting the processes of archaeology, the exhibit features period artifacts and objects recovered during past investigations of the battlefield. The three-dimensional fiber optic map with accompanying narration and diorama offer a vivid account of the battle. A diorama was produced by Vermont artist Paul V. Winter. In 2017, a display was created to showcase the possessions of Aaron Oliver, an African American soldier from New Hampshire who was captured at the Battle of Hubbardton. The items on display include a priming horn, cartridge pouch, shaving mirror, and a small wooden object that is either a canteen of some kind or used for storing powder.
