St. Albans, Vermont

map

 

Once known as the Rail City (a testament to the heavy role the railroad played in the city's past), St. Albans has the distinction of being the northnermost point of hostilities in the Civil War. On October 19, 1864, twenty-two Confederate soldiers robbed every bank in the city and then escaped over the Canadian border with just over $200,000. They were acquitted in Canada (who felt that the rules of war made such things as bank robberies fairly minor offenses and not necessarily criminal), and only about 1/4 of the money was eventually returned. Residents of the city were ticked at Canada for quite a while as a result.

Fast forward to today, where St. Albans plays host to a major port on Lake Champlain and offers attractions such as Burton Island State Park and the St. Albans Historical Museum. Visitors in April will get the chance to experience their annual Maple Festival.
