Connecticut is a state located in the northeastern region of the United States, bordered by Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts. It was one of the thirteen colonies that claimed independence from Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War.


American Revolutionary War[]

Before the American Revolution broke out, Benjamin Tallmadge moved to Connecticut from New York.[1]

Jonathan Trumbull was governor of the colony. He was one of the few colonial governors to side with the Patriots, prompting suspicions from the Colonial Assassins. They eventually he discovered he was a member of the Templars, and kept watch over him until his death in 1785.[2]

In 1777, the British Army occupied Danbury and threatened to burn the city having become drunk from raiding the local rum stores. The Assassins alerted the local militias who launched an attack, but this prompted the British to set fire.[2]

After British forces left Philadelphia, George Washington re-established their headquarters in New York City and founded a network of rebel spies, the Culper Ring. They operated in New York and Connecticut from 1778 to the end of the Revolution.[3] When Henry Clinton tried to draw Washington into open conflict in New Haven. Washington was relying on the efforts of his Culper Ring to keep his movements secret, and the Assassins escorted some of their members to safety in West Point, New York, during Tryon's raid. In 1781, the Assassins attempted to kill Benedict Arnold at the Battle of Groton Heights, but were unable to reach him.[2]
