Vermont Border

Recommended Posts

@Kurt Faulhammer @LM32 @Richard @Russ

A diplomat from Vermont has been speaking with Governor Clinton and members of the Legislature. Vermont seeks admission to the United States, but New York claims the lands being administered as Vermont as its own territory. These disputes would need to be settled before Vermont could apply for statehood. State leaders ask for the advice of New York's Congressional delegation.

Mr. Tyson strongly suggests that Vermont be considered New York land. "We have one of the best economies in the country, where businesses can come to grow, and we take care of our citizens, both farmers and urban, so I do not think it is a good idea for this land to be taken from a state that can cultivate it and be created anew in an atmosphere that could quite possibly stifle its growth and harm the people that live there."

Vermont is urged to remain apart of New York

Are the gentlemen advocating we take the territory under our control? By force if necessary?

Mr. Tyson is suggesting the state keeps its rightful territory and that Governor Clinton should think hard about how much better of a position these citizens would be in by being part of a growing economy than an upstart small state.

OOC: Vermont is currently an independent country. New York's claim comes from a royal charter from a century ago. So if you want them back under New York control it'll involve military annexation.

OOC: I'm hinting at it strongly but keeping plausible deniability. I'm also trying to use state pride but not make other states angry.

Vermont is apart of New York. It is rightfully ours and if force is necessary to retain our state integrity then so be it.

Mr. O'Rourke's position is that we must allow the people to decide. He would argue that only popular referendum by all free citizens can justify annexation.

The Legislature is now considering a motion to mobilize its state militia to bring Vermont under New York control.
