CT American Revolution Tours

Visiting a historic site is not the same as following a storyline. Our nine Connecticut American Revolution tours build narratives. How does the plow in the museum at Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding connect to the mural in the Greenwich Library? How does Ore Hill Pond relate to the Salisbury Furnace on Ethan Allen Road? Study the lovely handmade maps. Pick a route or even a portion of a route to drive or bicycle (or a bit of both!) and see Connecticut’s American Revolution story unfold as you move through the landscape. Suddenly small historic markers will have context and French flags near stone memorials will make sense.

The nine themed tours include:
1. Ethan Allen: The Green Mountain Boys and the Arsenal of the Revolution
2. Danbury Raid and the Forgotten General
3. Israel Putnam and the Escape at Horse Neck
4. Side Tour: Farmer Put and the Wolf Den
5. Washington/Rochambeau and Victory at Yorktown
6. New Haven and the 1779 Invasion
7. Nathan Hale: Patriot Spy
8. Side Tour: Nathan Hale: Teacher and the Turtle
9. Benedict Arnold: Traitor Torches New London
