History of Impeachment in Vermont
The history of impeachment is difficult to trace, in part because the term has been, at times, broadly applied to govern other actions, notably the expulsion of members of the General Assembly. We are indebted to the research of Paul Gillies and the late Robert Hagerman and encourage further research in the Archives on the topic.
