I am so glad, Donarita! You can tell your son that Tryon's Raid, and Arnold's on Groton (Fort Griswald) produced scores of casualties on both sides and were as significant, in terms of numbers involved if not strategic importance, as Concord Bridge and the actions that followed along Battle Road up Massachusetts way that started the whole thing off in 1775. Best regards, Tim

Thank you for this information! I am putting a history of our family together and my Revolutionary War ancestor, Asa Anderson, states in his pension papers that he saw General Wooster shot while on his horse and Asa carried Wooster's body......(somewhere but that part is hard to read)...anyhow, my son, who works for the State of CT. said there were not "really" any battles fought in Ct. SAsa took a musket ball to the knee I think it was a "real" battle!

Thanks again...the best I have read on Danbury!
