John Stark Day

John Stark Day

Each year The Founders Academy celebrates John Stark Day with a breakfast fundraiser honoring the "Hero of Bennington."  Please join us on the second Monday in April as we honor the soldier and military General.

Stark fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill and later led a militia of more than 1400 in a victory over British Gen. John Burgoyne at the Battle of Bennington on Aug. 16, 1777. This victory is widely regarded as the turning point of the war, also gave New Hampshire its motto: "Live free or die."
