Connecticut is a small state, but she played an outsize role in the American Revolution. Connecticut supplied large numbers of troops, warded off British attacks, and provisioned Washington’s army with crucial food at Valley Forge. The War changed Connecticut in many ways that would be important for her future.
Presented by Steve McGrath, recently retired Adjunct Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University. He has written several articles for the “Connecticut History Review” and “The Connecticut Historical Society Bulletin,” and has presented papers to the Association for the Study of Connecticut History, the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church, and the Anglican Historical Society of Canada. He is past president of the Connecticut Coordinating Committee for the Promotion of History and past secretary of the Association for the Study of Connecticut History.
