Event Details

Please join us with Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager at the Connecticut Historical Society, who will present on Connecticut during the American Revolution.

 Which side are you on? That's the question that every person in Connecticut had to answer in 1775 as the thirteen colonies began a rebellion against British rule. Loyalty was not only a matter of words or opinion. For soldiers and civilians alike, loyalty could mean loss of fortune, friends, and even of life. This presentation reveals stories - some well known, some obscure and some that will certainly surprise you.
