While no battles of the Revolutionary War took place on New Hampshire soil, the people of New Hampshire played an integral role in fighting and winning against the British. First settled in the 1620s, the providence fell under shifting political control until, in 1692, English Monarchs William and Mary officially chartered it as a royal colony. From the 1680s until 1760, New Hampshire was on the front lines of military conflicts with France and indigenous people. The providence played a hand in the creation of its neighboring state, Vermont, when it sent settlers west into lands that were also claimed by New York; the resulting conflict led to the creation of Vermont. During the 1770s the people of New Hampshire were torn on the issue of Independence, but when the hostilities began New Hampshire stood bravely to support the American rebellion. They became the first colony to establish an independent government and constitution in January of 1776, and the 1774 raid of Fort William and Mary, conducted by 400 Sons of Liberty led by John Sullivan, secured cannon and gunpowder that proved invaluable to the American cause. New Hampshire soldiers and generals were hugely important to the war effort. New Hampshire provided the Continental Army with three regiments that took part in many major campaigns and battles like the Battle of Bunker Hill, the Saratoga Campaign, and the Battle of Rhode Island. New Hampshire generals, like John Sullivan, were trusted advisors and lieutenants to George Washington. Another major way New Hampshire made their mark on the war was on the high seas; New Hampshire led the way in the construction of the new American navy.
