Some of the most prominent families of the American Revolution proudly hailed from Connecticut. 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.

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.

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