General John Stark


John Stark (1728 - 1822) is best known for popularizing the NH state motto "Live Free or Die". NH born and bred, Stark was possibly the best military leader in Granite State history. He fought with Robert Rogers in the French and Indian Wars. He commanded a large force of NH men at the Battle of Bunker Hill. He won the Battle of Bennington, which some historians say led to the British loss at Saratoga and turned the tide of the Revolutionary War. The son of Glasgow immigrants, Stark was born in Londonderry, NH and moved to Derryfield (Manchester) where he is buried and his home still stands. When not soldering, Stark was a farmer. He and his wife Molly raised 10 children and Stark lived to age 94.
