BHS Presents David Redding, Hanged in Bennington
June 23 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm | Free and open to the public

Bennington Historical Society presents David Redding, Hanged in Bennington. This talk is given by historian Phil Holland and held in the Ada Paresky Education Center of the Bennington Museum.

On June 11, 1778, Loyalist David Redding was hanged on the Bennington town green for “inimical conduct.” Ethan Allen, having been recently released from a British prison, served as State’s prosecutor. It became Vermont’s first hanging. Holland tells the story of Redding’s trial and execution which was only the beginning of his odyssey through history.
