UVM historian Vince Feeney offers this compelling portrait of indentured servant, Green Mountain Boy, son-in-law to Thomas Chittenden, land speculator and entrepreneur Matthew Lyon, one of the most colorful characters in Vermont's early years.  Perhaps best remembered for his imprisonment under the Alien and Sedition Acts and his subsequent re-election to Congress while in jail, his life not only exemplified the promise of our new nation, but also reflected the political tensions of the times.  Sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council.
