The Weekend the British Burned Danbury

June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

"The Weekend the British Burned Danbury"

 Mike Allen's Local His-Stories

About the Program:

It was 1777, early in the Revolutionary War, and a weekend military mission into inland Connecticut was supposed to be a seminal military victory for the British in their attempts to put down the Patriot uprising. The objective was to march from Long Island Sound to Danbury and remove it as a key supply center for the Patriots. It was the first time the British had marched inland to do battle during the war. It didn't work out as exactly as planned.
