"The Vermont constitution was far reaching — the first to prohibit slavery, establish universal voting rights for all males, and authorize a public school system. The constitution guided the Republic for 14 years until 1791, when Vermont was admitted to the Union as the fourteenth state. Less than a year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, another new Republic was taking shape. Delegates from the newly independent Republic of Vermont gathered at a Windsor tavern to draft a constitution.
Called the "Birthplace of Vermont", the restored Old Constitution House looks as it did more than 200 years ago. "
Just another reason why Windsor is awesome. Don't forget to rock the Vote!
