Brief History[edit | edit source]

Stannard was chartered on August 19, 1867 by the Vermont Legislature. One of the most acclaimed veterans returned from the Civil War was General George Stannard, who was called the Hero of Gettysburg by his fe!low Vermonters. Most military historians give General Stannard and his Vermonters credit for having achieved one of the key victories of the war when they first broke Pickett's charge and then later repulsed the attack by Florida and Alabama troops at the Battle of Gettysburg.

Finally heeding the pleas of its residents, the legislature decided to give what had been known as Goshen Gore Number 1 independent status as a town. The new town was named Stannard in the General's honor.

The population of Stannard at the 2010 U.S. Census was 216. Stannard is the smallest township in Caledonia county and the town has no paved roads.  [1] [2] [3]
