Tories, Spies, and Traitors: Divided Loyalty in Revolutionary CT
WHEN: March 7th at 6:30 PM
WHERE: Town Hall Assembly Room
Which side are you on? That’s the question that every single 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, of friends, and even of life. This presentation reveals stories—some well known, some obscure—of Nutmeggers who risked and sacrificed to support their chosen side during this “tumultuous jarring time of civil war.”
