“Which side are you on?” That’s the question that every single person in Connecticut, including those here in Canterbury, 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, 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.”
Free and open to the public, please join the Canterbury Historical Society as we welcome the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History for this historical presentation following our regularly scheduled monthly business meeting at 7 PM in the Canterbury Town Hall Community Room, 1 Municipal Drive.
