The Vermont Republic was an independent republic that existed from 1777 until it became the state of Vermont—the 14th state of the United States of America—in 1791. In 1763, the Treaty of Paris ended the French and Indian War, giving the area to the British. Parts of the region were controlled by the Province of New York and Province of New Hampshire. Ethan Allen and his "Green Mountain Boys" fought against the British, then later against these states, and in 1777 Vermont declared itself an independent republic. The area was also called New Connecticut for its first six months of existence, then Vermont, and was sometimes colloquially called the Republic of the Green Mountains.
