VERMONT'S HISTORIC STATE HOUSE
The Cedar Creek Reception Room has been restored to a period later than the building itself. Dominated by the 20 by 10 foot painting The Battle of Cedar Creek. The Battle of Cedar Creek, painted by Julian Scott from 1871 to 1874 for the State House, commemorates one of Vermont's finest moments in the Civil War. In Virginia's Shenandoah Valley in October, 1864, the Old Vermont Brigade in the center of the canvas leads a rally that would reverse a Union retreat. A native of Johnson, Vermont, Scott won one of the first Congressional Medals of Honor for valor at the battle at Lee's Mills.
