"Adventure you can choose your own adventure there and Other places in the base in The rutland map is a cool cycling and then it takes a tour around Rutland two different kinds of practices of two cards. There's some sites that are large trees are great for using a lot of rainwater that falls trying to think of some of the other sites and down by Burlington waterfront looks at there's a beautiful ring that's been put in new the Skate Park. So. That's one of the features areas of Burlington. Green roofs by the university hospital are one of the sites. So they the different towns, it's kind of a fun way to explore things that you might not think about looking at on a regular visit to one of these communities, but it's kind of a fun way to. Four and check out the community in a in a new way. Aside from the walking in bicycling tours, and that sort of thing is it's amazing to me the range of I was reading up a little bit about the late shift. Lake Champlain Sea Grant Program and. Sounds like there's a lot of community reach out to. Here. Here's a here's an example, the lake, education and action program or leap that is run the potently Meta we natural resources conservation district and the program recruits hires educates engages college and high school interns to deduct lakeshore and ripe. Property Assessments Educating Landowners about the importance of lakeshore and Ripe Perry buffers, and to plant native plants in off this other practices that can help create a more natural shoreline. So it sounds like there's some. Door knocking goes, on here. To. Yes great program that that. Country just distant runs the next great experience for the students that they hire that they did some it was a little bit different because of Kobe but under normal circumstances, the seasons are educated about what what, why is it important to have? Plants along shorelines then to not be mowing right up to the edge of the water and students get that education early in the season, and then they are able to go out and. Like you say, knock on doors, talk to people share with them. Some educational materials in parallel we have another program that we support blue. That's also doing properties, sentiments not necessarily along shoreline properties, but just helping to understand well, one rainfall, your home, what are the things that you can do to help minimize it immediately running off down the street into the storm drain so both programs. Engaged student interns who are teaching community members that the great. Homeowner and young person opportunity with a great opportunity for students especially are. You don't have a lot of science related jobs in parts of Vermont word an opportunity. For younger students take to get this professional experience as news before they even had off to college. We're expanding that One of the things that happen this year is we were. In National Review of we have excelled in that review, and what that has done is allowed to bring in additional base funding to our program, and so one of the things doing expanding the league programs have three other watersheds and natural resource conservation districts around the bathroom including the Mafia area. And up towards the Canadian border. So we're excited to be able to have those opportunities for them to employ college and high school in in those communities next look planning now for that to happen next summer. Well one of the tributaries Aleisha in plain is the Moyle River, and if you go up the river from Lake Champlain, eventually get to hardwick where we have a listener calling in Cairns on the line. Good Morning Karen. Morning. And wonder why you why do you never address the? Issue of. Billions of gallons of high acid waste from. Cabinet in other creameries. And the major issue of the leachate from the dump food truck month or year. Well it sounds like two separate issues. Let's first go to the. The creamer is, is there some work being done on on this Front Chris? Could not specifically, but in terms of the education that we do with the school groups, one of the things we talk about is what's called non point source pollution, and so the creamery may be. Considered the source of pollutants and it would be mandated by the clean water act to have a plan and they've been has spills or if it has out out follow, that would be. re regulated by that. CLEAN WATER ACT IF. They're problem point source of pollution, and they spread it all over farmland and it becomes non point source. And they have to do anything about it. I'm not familiar with the specifics of it but they they are spreading it on farmland big with the operating under a Nutrient Management Plan that would be specifically saying, okay. How much we transfer on this farmland now can't accept more and so there should be a plan that they're operating. If there isn't a then then there should be somebody who is working with them to get that in order and I'm positive don't and not knowing specific says it. was asked let's talk about the the landfill leachate which. I do understand is is trucks down to. My. From the landfilling contres is you talking about Karen? I Guess Karen Off. What lie? Christy much about that is that anything that the Lake Champlain's he grant program has looked at? It is not. Our focus is really on educating folks around of big picture issues in these specific ones are are not ones that I'm familiar with unfortunately. Yeah. Okay and obviously you know bear problems that crop up from time to time on environmental issues and in Vermont and. I appreciate our listeners calling up and reminding it there some specific cases out there suspected These are things that the state environmental agency needs to be looking into new maybe already is looking into and so thank. Thank you for the call. Let's. Yup, Chris I understand that the sea grant program recently received national recognition national recognition as a top program of its type from the National Ocean Ocean Attic Oceanic. And Atmospheric Administration now must be quite an honor. Yeah it it really is. We are one of thirty four grant programs in the country I think we have the best story of of being a C- Grant Program of thanks to Senator Leahy. He's helped to bring the funding here in nineteen ninety, nine, four Lake Champlain focused senior that program and the recognition is Really relates back to the strong partnerships we have with the groups around the face in the watershed gauge, the natural resource conservation districts the. State. And local nonprofit groups and being able to work with them to educate and partner with them to help the bring people's knowledge around what a what a watershed is and that is the land area draining to a certain water body and trying to take action and encourage people to take action on the ground that can. Promote healthy ecosystems and good water quality, and one of the things that exciting about the distinction of having been recognized this year. It's again brought additional funding to the basin. So that allows us to extend our work further with local partner groups and we talked a little bit about the leap program and being able to bring that out to. Different communities in my clear of into, there's for follows area and over into the the Wilson area and beyond that as well. we're often doing other things. But. We're pretty excited about we are creating a scholarship program that's within the University of Vermont. To try to retain a diverse population of a black and digital and other people of color who are representing very small portion of the university students and hoping to encourage them to. Continue on beyond to enter into science technology engineering and math fields. Also working to partner with southern firms and others choose tablets an indigenous education condition because of the long income thousand plus year history of having indigenous people here in the basement before many of the other cultures had. Came to this place and they were really excited about being able to think about. Where you know people began here in the League's base and then being able to share that educational programs. One thing I was wondering about is the name seagrams sort of makes me think, maybe most of the other thirty four. Or thirty three sites around the country. On the coast along oceans is it true? That most of them are except with the exception of the air programs in Great Lakes. State, So we are we are unique in that year they won non-grape Lake. and Non Ocean Edge Grant. Program in the country. While the what is it they? Senator Leahy used to call champlain the sixth grade lake or something like that. Yeah. When Senator Lay, he wrote the reauthorization for grant back in the late nineteen, ninety nine or two, thousand He put a little carrot in there and I. Believe like was a Great Lakes for a couple of weeks. which was part of getting this program to be able to be funded in the end we we are now pretty good lake that we all think is great, which is a okay and you know grateful to have this opportunity to bring in the the resources and the network resources of the program. One thing that would flex on that is this summer there with Kobe did the national secret program made available funds to each of the thirty four student programs to be able to bring dollars into our communities to be able to address uncovered response. So some of the things we did with that was to support a community sailing center hugh. WHO's low income, middle income and children of essential workers to be able to go to summer camp and to have a daycare even prior to summer camp was getting. Going, we supported of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum see host virtual summer camps because most camps around. The country you're were canceled. gave the parents and opportunities to have their children get some science than watersheds -cation and have have fun even though they couldn't really go to summer camp. we also supported the the lake champlain. Economic. Development. Corporation in trying to get Kuban fakey message out and Made it to make it fun by having a photo contest where people could be visiting different businesses in their coverings and showing the days businesses were open and it was safe to be able to go there So long as you were falling covid safes guidelines. So we feel like it's the opportunity to be a figure programming to be funded and have this connection with. No is really bringing extra resources to the base and that we hope are reflecting in many communities across the nation. It's amazing. The range of issues that the sea grant program gets into I mean. Promoting Diversity in the sciences you're talking about real sort of soil in the fingers environmental stuff, and now you're you're talking about. All of these other efforts in the community response to say something like the covert pandemic. It is it is. It really is an amazing range of stuff that you're doing there and it's it's fascinating.

A Sit Down with The National Wildlife Federation: Kristy Jones and Liz Soper
"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level And really pushing forward the work that we do with schools and other informal education opportunities and community My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon And then pretty much. Except for one other job with The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF And you know my my passion for this work. I I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation. So I guess I'm going on my sixteenth seventeenth year. I've worked in higher education program so I manage higher education programmes at National Wildlife Federation working with colleges and universities working with them to help them advance their efforts on campus Sustainability Renewable Energy Waste Reduction Habitat Restoration Green purchasing that sort of thing. And I've I've done that since the entire time I've been at NWS We also in our program here. We also help college students. Young professionals develop leadership skills and also learn more about career opportunity so career development to learn what their opportunities are in conservation field or their opportunities are in learning about sustainability and sustainability skill. So they can bring that to whatever a career field sector. They choose to go into after they finish school. So I believe you know similar to Liz. I grew up outdoors playing all the time spending all day in the summertime that we would be out as soon as the sun was up and become home. You know. As soon as it was starting to get dark I grew up camping. You know we would go to the closest national park to win where we grew up was Shenandoah National Park here in Virginia and I still live in this area in that area. So we we go to the park all the time. It's beautiful and so I take my little girl there as well So just growing up. We spent a Lotta time outdoors. I really enjoyed seeing wildlife and spending time and hiking and going to the beach and searching for seashells and that sort of thing when I graduated college. Actually a little bit. Before I graduated college I went on a trip to Andros Island. The Bahamas in it's a family island in the Bahamas and I went to a field station their biological field station and that is where I spent the next six years of my life. After College I worked at the field station. I worked with college. Students and high school high school students helping down learn about ecology and learning field skills in that type of thing and that really helped me really understand value of hands on learning. So you know whenever you education as you know there's sitting in the classroom and learning there is value to that there's also value to being out in the field learning skills. You know the experiential part of that and so. When after that after I left the field station I worked for nonprofit for a little bit in the environmental security sector and that really looked at conflict around natural resources so water timber diamonds was another example and that that was looking at conflicts most likely outside the US. And then. When I started looking for a new opportunity I was really attracted to. Nwf's education programs. We have a very large education program. National Wildlife Federation engaging. Little kids all the way up through adults and so that is kind of what got me hooked at. Nwf and applied for a job on the campus sustainability team. And so I've been here since two thousand three. That's awesome okay so I will let you guys now kind of feel these answer. You know whoever wants to answer white and build upon each other's responses in we're going to focus a lot on education recycle mania but you know the. Nwf Is a massive umbrella brand for a lot of different environmental conservation causes. So I did want to do a little bit of background about the mission. You know the strategic plan the six pillars of what makes the NWF and then we can get into the specs of the educational programs so whoever wants to field kind of the overall NWF mission answer can A. I'll go again and you know the midst of NWF is really to unite ensure that wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world and There's no doubt in all of our minds and these days that our world is rapidly changing whether it's with this pandemic Like we're facing right now or the pack that more than one third of Americans. Fish and wildlife are at risk for extinction or the climate crisis. And of course all of these impacts what the impacts are on any of our marginalized communities so you recently. I just wanted to mention this because I think it's really important and it really sets the stage who I believe. Nwf is particularly right now and our it was CEO Calling Amarah who recently said that we need to be leading this charged with compassion. You know during this time because this pandemic is clearly showing that men. There are many structural inequalities in our societies such as access to clean water food healthcare or the

An Interview With John McKenna, Chairman of Recreational Aviation Foundation
"We're speaking with john. Mckenna who is the chairman in one of six co founders of the recreational aviation foundation or simply r._a._f. Korea created during a backwoods campfire discussion in two thousand three the r._i._f. Has developed into an organization that stretches from the pacific to the atlantic and beyond what exactly is the purpose of the r._i._f. I think our mission statement says it pretty well. It's to preserve protect and to maintain and creates recreational opportunities rare scripts for people across the united states komo early for recreational opportunities so we're talking about remote airstrips when i have in my mind is grass gris drips in the woods. Is that what we're talking about. That could be certainly what you might see or think of if you were to do the poster but they r._a._f. Has really taken to the fact that where people can go and enjoy themselves with their plane or have a fun time they also count and <hes> so we might sort of break it into two kinds of airports one which would be known as backcountry airport which might somewhat fit that descript or that you just suggested and the other is <hes> perhaps same front entry airport that isn't necessarily buried in the in the back woods or in bottom of a deep canyon if might frankly c._b._s. Not on the lakefront edger <hes> on the edge of town. I think of some in oregon that are on the beach people can frankly fly into their bonanza go for a hike or go set up their tent and bring their children or their grandchildren or friends and <hes> for a bike ride or whatever the case may be so the stereotype might be as you described. We'd like to think that it's expanding recreational use and preserving the fun places for people to go with an airplane. So how many airports like that are you counting and are they endanger of closure well. There are certainly some that are very definitely in danger and when i say danger there are activists that perhaps don't share the same interest in aviation that we all do and they would just assume that airplanes in any way shape or form place would go away and they candidly work at making that take place so there's certainly people who are actively taking to close certain airstrips in certain parts of the country then there are frankly ones where might go but at the other end of the spectrum they've just been forgotten about and there's some use but not a lot so people fly by and they asked the question. I wonder could you land there. Can i land there and our first filter is does it have some recreational value or some interest to it that people might enjoy once they get on the ground bill today. Today i find myself standing in stover mont and we spent a great day yesterday exploring some of this area with some friends many of which you would know touching down on grass airstrips all up and down the shores of lake champlain up near mount marcy and in the mountains of vermont bond and you may not think of that as that country flying but it was a landing in some spectacular places with spectacular views and lots of things extraju yeah actually i've been there and it's a beautiful part of the world i know you're from the west the news the taller mountains than they have in the east but that can be pretty rugged around stowe vermont well isn't that the fun part about airplanes and that is that we get the opportunity to see things that maybe aren't in our backyard and and yes. You're absolutely right. I might have been one of those previously biased people who thought that all the mountains in the west but i can assure you they're not <hes> <hes> somebody left behind right here in vermont and they they go up to some tall elevations and i'm convinced we don't have the corner on the market working out in the west funny so the r._a._f. Is sixteen years in to its existence into its program. How would you evaluate your record so apar- astonishing i think it would candidly i'm both at times stunned and more often humbled when you start out with six people who literally have an idea and sort of parked himselves around a campfire and you find yourself involved with an organization fifteen almost seventeen years later that has some ten thousand plus members scattered all across all fifty states in twelve or fourteen eighteen different foreign countries and you know bill. One of the most interesting things is the foreign members that we have is the r._a._f. Who i every once in a while get a chance is to engage with and their reason for belonging is they want to preserve what we've talked about here because it's probably already been lost in the place they live and they're willing to support it here just on the off chance that they may get a chance to come and do it themselves or they think that we should be pretty vigilant about this because we live in a very special spot that has some are unique freedom attached to it. What are the greatest challenges or obstacles to the r._i._f. Fulfilling its mission. It's probably not much different than most of our businesses or anything else and it's the people and the challenges we are nearly one hundred percent volunteer organization. Asian people are all volunteers. They all do this because they love it. It's surely always the <hes> the challenge to keep the right kind of leadership and people who <hes> have the time to devote to it to that end. We are blessed with a great deal of folks. That are are just passionate about this stuff so i may be you. Don't worry about the same things that others do but yet at the same time i do worry about the interest in aviation.

I feel like we're on the right track. We're basically land conservation group that plies airplanes and probably not bad place to be not a bad place at all and you're at a very very good place right now up in sto- in thank you for your time and good luck with the program.

"Today episode one zero six arms race on Lake champlain today. I'm going to step away from New York City again to take a look at events on Lake Champlain at the same time the how brothers in New York we're using their massive. If military to push Washington out of the city Generals Carlton and Burgoyne were trying to push southward from Canada we less looked at Canada in episode ninety five when General Carlton's troops pushed the last west of the continental army out of Canada and into Lake Champlain in upstate New York the remains of the Patriots Northern Army fell back to Fort Ticonderoga for the British in Canada. Everything seems to be going well that Spring Burgoyne had a late arrival in May seventeen seventy six but by the end of June the British had pushed the Americans out of Canada entirely for going head used the eight thousand or so British and German forces that he brought with. I'm from Britain with the combined local militia and Indians and troops already in Canada. He had a force of about eleven to twelve thousand men following the victory and Canada Carlton and Burgoyne disagreement became more parrot clearly according to rank and Lord Germain's express orders Carlton Retained Command Burgoyne would obey orders but as most top subordinates did at the time made clear to anyone who would listen that Carlton Charlton was holding him back he could lead the forces to victory. If only General Carleton did not hold his reign so tightly burgoyne remember had left Boston in the fall of seventeen seventy five to return home and convinced the King A. And Ministry that he knew how to win the war he had even drafted a memo for the ministry and titled Thoughts for conducting the War from the side of Canada and there's a quote to the original document on my blog. If you WANNA take a look at it for going plan to lead his military force up the Saint Lawrence River to break the siege of Quebec and Free General Carleton from there his men would move down Lake champlain and retake Fort Ticonderoga next they would move down the Hudson River eventually linking up with General House army that will be moving up the river from New York City. He even made a bet with a friend in London that he would be back victorious by Christmas seventeen in seventy seven now there was nothing particularly new or original about this plan. The ministry had been planning to use the Hudson River to cut off New England since the war began for Goi- memo added far more details us on exactly what troops should be used and why that essentially is what the ministry adopted as its plan but with one alteration General Carleton Dot burgoyne would command the army after it reached Quebec General Carleton could not easily move his British fleet on the Saint Lawrence River to take lake champlain he would have to disassemble his ships carry them up the rapids then reassemble them at Saint John Before he he could sail into the lake or in the alternative build new ships at Saint John and carry over the armaments that were needed either option though would take months for going thought they should continue to press their advantage edge. The British had a clear military superiority and had the continentals on the run with the cooperation of the local Indians. The British could move overland to Fort Ticonderoga and bypass the rebel fleet he commanded by General Arnold that was on the lake for going also suggested moving further up river to Lake Ontario and marching on the Americans from the West through New York State Carlton However thought these plans were too. Risky he preferred the safer option of building a fleet to recapture the late then sailing down the lake to Fort Ticonderoga and capturing the fort it was undoubtedly a safer option but it meant the British could not begin moving until fall that gave the rebels time to build up their defenses on the lake and at the fort even if the British could take the fort in the fall that almost certainly meant Pasi again for the winter and not starting down down the Hudson until the spring of seventeen seventy seven at the earliest General Carleton also used General House approach by trying to reconcile with the rebels after capturing Canada he released most of his prisoners including Daniel Morgan the future general he issued pardons liberally to Canadians and made every effort to make sure the locals were happy and could put all the recent unpleasantness behind them for going quickly grew frustrated traded at waiting in addition to a host of other reasons for wanting to see his work through to a quick ending he had left his sick wife in London he had hoped he could get back to care for her sadly as he sat in Canada all summer waiting for things to happen he learned that his wife had died in June. Another very strong argument against waiting was smallpox. The disease had ravaged both armies during the war and had been particularly regularly destructive and Canada now I know I've talked about the ravages of disease before but it's hard to underestimate its importance more than ninety percent of the military deaths during the revolution came from disease smallpox smallpox typhus typhoid fever malaria and dysentery killed thousands in Canada alone having soldiers sitting around all summer would likely kill more of them than sending them into battle unlike the continentals who could always find more and more men to replace the fallen the British had to spend far more time and expense to import fresh troops from across the ocean for going occupied his time by keeping up a correspondence with Secretary of state Lord Germain in London Germain already had a bad opinion of Carlton so he readily listened and supported Burgoyne frustration over Carlton's lack of action. When the king proposed awarding Carlton Tint the Order of the Bath Germain tried unsuccessfully to prevent it although Carlton had other friends in high places which protected him Germain would look for any reason to recall Carlton and promote her going during that summer Lord Germain issued orders to give her going an independent command of an army in New York while he left Carlton to remain in command in Canada but those orders mostly due to logistical problems did not reach Canada until seventeen seventy seven so for the remainder of the year Carlton ran the show and we're going sat around impatiently waiting for something to change on the Patriot side fear of an eminent British attack loomed over everything Congress decided to change the leadership in hopes of finding someone who could whip the American army into shape and hold off any invasion into New York once the British had pushed the Patriots treats out of Canada following the battle of three rivers Congress shipped General Sullivan Back to New York City in time to be captured at the battle of Brooklyn General Wooster returned to Connecticut and would resign his commission a few months later in there place congre sent General Horatio Gates although gates was one of the original generals that Congress appointed back in the summer of seventeen seventy five? I haven't had much to say about him so far as he hasn't hadn't really done much gates was British born in Seventeen twenty seven to commoner parents despite his low birth he somehow obtained a Lieutenant's commission as a young man and served in Germany during the war of Austrian succession. Accession he must have served well as he received a wartime promotion to captain. Despite the fact that there was no way he had the money to pay for such a commission after the war gate sold his commission in the regular army and moved to New York doc the sale of his commission gave him enough money to establish a new life for himself. When general braddock came to America in seventeen fifty five to fight the French and Indian war gates join the expedition to Fort Pitt along with all the other kids who would grow up to be famous Thomas Gage Charles Lee Daniel Morgan Daniel Boone and George Washington Gates was wounded at the Battle of the Managua Hilo but recovered and returned to service he continued Oh you deserve as a regular officer in the seven years war fighting in both North America and the West indies by the end of the war gates had risen to the rank of major in seventeen sixty nine? He sold his Majors Commission and purchased a small plantation in Virginia there he renewed his friendship with fellow plantation owner George Washington in seventeen seventy five when Congress appointed Washington as commander in chief he requested that gates also be named a general in the Continental Army Gates became the army's first agenda in general while gates did well at his job. It was mostly paperwork not the sort of thing that gets much glory as an experienced field officer Sir Gates pushed for an independent command in May seventeen seventy six after Washington had moved the bulk of the continental army from Boston to New York Congress promoted gates to Major General and June it assigned him the independent command of the Northern Army unfortunately for gates his independent command was not quite as independent as he had hoped General Schuyler is senior remained in overall command of the region in the past Congress had bypass General Schuyler by leaving him in overall command of forces in upstate New York but left other generals. I General Montgomery Than Worcester Than Thomas Than Sullivan. I'm in charge of the forces that were engaged in actual combat in Canada to get his promotion gates had gone to Philadelphia to lobby for the Independent Command in doing so he heavily criticized scholars performance as the commander his lobbying paid off when Congress promoted gates to Major General and gave him command of the Continental Army in Canada. The problem was that by the time gates arrived in upstate New York for the Patriot forces in Canada had already retreated back to New York once they're the army fell under the authority of General Schuyler as a result gates effectively became scholars second in command gates gates was of course upset that his independent command had now become subordinate to General Schuyler. 's immediately began a letter writing campaign to friends in Congress to undercut scholars reputation with the apparent intent of having Schuyler relieved so that he could take command himself the two-man began bickering over just about everything and divided the politicians as well as the army into team Schuyler and Team Gates New England Colin politicians tended to favour gates based on his military experience with the regular Army New Yorkers tended to favour Schuyler who had the senior rank and experience in the region Amazingly General Benedict Arnold who who typically got along with no one seemed to have a pretty good working relationship with both men unfortunately his failure to pick a side would cause him problems down the road but for now on this one issue at least East Arnold was often the voice of diplomacy and reason although he was an army General Arnold had made himself the naval commander of Lake Champlain he commanded a few large ships the enterprise and the liberty which. She had captured right after the fall of Fort Ticonderoga. He also had the royal savage which General Montgomery had captured after the fall of Saint John his troops were still building the revenge near Ticonderoga he had had four large row galley-ships The Washington Congress trumbull and Gates as well as a smaller one the Lee then he had eight smaller gondolas all of these smaller ships had mounted cannon and would certainly harass and threaten in any British ships that moved onto the lake with the British pause at the Canadian border causing a lull in fighting during the summer. The Northern Army took some time to take care of some delayed business in late July it held courts martials for Colonel Fidel and major butterfield the two officers who had behaved so poorly at the Battle of cedars back in May both men were found guilty and cashiered that same month the Court Marshall of Moses Hazen threatened to disrupt the entire army you may recall hazing was a local Canadian he had tried to play both sides after the Patriots and invaded Canada but after the British had arrested him him and he escaped he decided to stick with the Patriots he received a commission as Colonel and raised a Patriot regiment from among his fellow Canadians for some time General Arnold seemed to have a good opinion of Hazen that changed after the Battle of the Cedars where Arnold Thought Hazen was not aggressive enough. Possibly even a coward worse hazing disobeyed Arnold orders to destroy the property of some who had cooperated with the British and Indian attack on the Cedars Hayes and believed that such destruction might have created more enemies for the army than it could handle but the issue that led to the Court Martial was hazings refusal to accept property that Arnold had sent to his care after the retreat from Montreal Arnold had promised Montreal merchants on his personal honor that they would receive payment for their property which the army needed Arnold had an officer carry the property to Hazen who refuse to accept it. The officer ended up leaving all the supplies by the side of the river where soldiers looted and took what they wanted Arnold was livid at this insubordination Congress had left are on the hook for stuff like this before he would feel honor bound to repay the merchants but would not get reimbursement from Congress if he could not account for the property it was also another example of Arnold subordinate officers simply ignoring his orders Arnold attempted to empanel a court martial against hazing in early July hazen protested to general gates who ordered Arnold not to proceed Arnold had apparently selected all the officers on the Court Martial himself and had selected some junior officers even though Colonel Hayes and had to write to be judged by field officers that is major or higher gates told Arnold to cut it out but allowed a proper court martial to be paddled a few days later to hear charges against Hazen for neglect of duty the problem with the new court martial headed by Colonel Ina poor or was that just about every officer on the court absolutely hated Arnold and was friends with hazing the court refused even to hear testimony from the officer whom Arnold had ordered to drop off the property to Hazen and who is pretty much the only witness who could testify to Hayes refusal to obey Arnold orders to take possession of the property they claim the witness was an interested party which so what lots of witnesses have some interest in a case that it is in favor of one side of the other but the court martial did not even say what that interest was.
