Aaron Hubbell was Deacon of the First Congregational Church in Bennington for years, and a Justice of the Peace. He was twenty years old at the time of the Battle of Bennington, and was a member of Captain Samuel Robinson's company of militia; he afterwards became Lieutenant of the company. After the first successful engagement of the battle - that at Baum's redoubt - he was placed as one of the guards, set over the prisoners captured in the action, as they were marched to the Bennington Meeting House. In the manuscript statement in possession of Governor Hall, Mr. Hubbell states that those prisoners numbered six hundred. He is shown in a large mural in the Bennington Museum depicting the round-up of (Hessian) prisoners after the battle of Bennington in 1777. According to the records, he had extensive military experience during the Revolutionary War, beginning in 1775. His pension was begun before 1833 when he filed new information to correct earlier errors. He indicates he served in various places in garrison and in the field, including October 20, 1777 when Burgoyne surrendered. He notes that in 1780 Ethan Allen visited his post in Castleton Vt. when he was quartermaster of the regiment by special appointment of Capt. Samuel Robinson - but he did not receive a written commission. He served under Col. Fletcher and General Enos. In 1855 his widow Lucinda was a pensioner in Bennington and she received 160 acres of bounty land in 1856.
