General John Stark(August 28, 1728 – May 8, 1822) is the namesake for the pub and mountain that is home to Mad River Glen. The General was a New Hampshire native who served as an officer in the British Army during the French and Indian War and a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution.  He became widely known as the “Hero of Bennington” for his exemplary service at the Battle of Bennington in 1777. The General is well known for coining New Hampshire’s motto; “Live Free or Die”. The phrase was adopted from a toast written by the General on July 31, 1809. Poor health forced Stark to decline an invitation to an anniversary reunion of the Battle of Bennington. Instead, he sent his legendary toast by letter:

Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils.

Cabot Creamery is a co-op
