    Because of his capture, he missed out on most of the Revolutionary War.
    The Green Mountain Boys were initially intended to fight New Yorkers.
    He was involved in negotiations to annex Vermont as part of Canada (probably to force the US to recognize it as a state).
    His name is now used by a furniture shop.
    His capture of Fort Ticonderoga (with only 83 men) was one of the turning points of the American Revolution.
    He is Vermont's best known military hero.
    He enjoyed reading.
    There is a statue of him in the US Capitol.
