The Vermont Republic was an independent entity from 1777-1791 when it joined the Union.

I honestly find this interesting. Hawaii, sure. I knew of the California Republic, but the others were news to me. Texas is understandable.

Vermont was never actually part of the thirteen colonies. It existed separately until it rejoined as the fourteenth state. Here's an article on it https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermont_Republic

Know what... I guess I did know that about Vermont somewhere in the forgotten h.S. History tests I failed.
