Vermont Free Territory

Title

Vermont Free Territory

Subject

Communes and Counterculture

Description

This flyer promotes the countercultural ethos and communal living in Vermont by numerous groups. Roz moved to Vermont in the 1970s to join a commune as did many of her friends. Together, the large number of communes saw their collective work as a move to guarantee the free country in Vermont for their shared countercultural values and beliefs. The use of the phrase, "Don't Tread on Me" further suggests a libertarian impulse shooting through the strong committmint to community values.
