Green Mountains, New England
This range of mountains rises in Lower Canada. They pass nearly through the centre of Vermont, from N. to S., and the westerly parts of the states of Massachusetts and Connecticut, and terminate near New Haven on Long Island Sound. From their green appearance they give the name to Vermont, and decrease in height as they approach the south. The north peak, in Mansfield, Vt., is the greatest elevation, being 4,279 feet above the surface of lake Champlain.
