Putnam State Park, Connecticut's first state park, was the site of Revolutionary War general Israel Putnam's last command. In the winter of 1778-79, three thousand troops of the Continental army built and lived in "the city," a winter encampment in the valleys of northern Redding. Historian Daniel Cruson describes in fascinating archaeological detail the construction of the camp and the soldiers' daily struggle to survive. Mutiny, execution, skirmishes and the heroism of Putnam himself are revealed in this compelling history. The story of Putnam State Park doesn't end when Continental troops marched out to engage the British; Cruson takes readers from the creation of the park itself to the present day.

About the Author:

Daniel Cruson is a retired high school teacher who designed and taught courses in anthropology and local history. His abiding interest in these fields has led him to do extensive research and writing on the history of the towns of central Fairfield County, including Easton, Redding and Newtown, as well as conducting several archaeological investigations in these towns in an attempt to learn more about the lifestyles of their past citizens. He has investigated deeply the subjects of rural slavery, vintage photography, early Connecticut architecture, colonial and post-colonial road building and early cemeteries and their grave markers. Mr. Cruson has been a member of the historical society in Newtown, where he lives, for forty years, having served as its president for five years. He was also a charter member of the Easton Historical Society and served a number of years on its board of trustees and as vice-president. Mr. Cruson is active with the Heritage Preservation Trust of Newtown, Society of American Archeology and the Archaeological Society of Connecticut, for which he is currently serving as president. He is also the town historian for Newtown and served as the chairman of the Newtown Tercentennial Commission in 2005. He has published several books.
