Committed to the pursuit of freedom, men like Major General David Wooster led troops into battle, while Samuel Huntington and others risked it all by signing the Declaration of Independence. Women might have stayed at home, but they played a vital part by producing goods for soldiers while also taking care of their property and children. In the wake of war, Sarah Pierce started the Litchfield Female Academy and taught protégés like Harriet Beecher Stowe. Family members often enlisted alongside one another. Elijah and David Humphreys were two such brothers who proudly served in the war together.

From the Burrs to the Wolcotts, author Mark Allen Baker reveals what life was like for Connecticut families during the Revolutionary War.
