Memorial State Park- This is where Sam Meeker was
encamped during the winter of 1778-79. This is the same camp
Tim describes when he attempts to free Sam from the stockade.
Tavern Museum- Listed on the National Register of
Historic Places, the Keeler Tavern Museum has been a farmhouse,
tavern, stagecoach stop, post office, hotel for travelers
and a private residence. The Meeker Family Tavern was very
similar and thus Keeler Tavern gives a glimpse at the way
Tim, Sam, Life and Suzanne lived and worked.
/ Knapp's Tavern Museum- Putnam's
Cottage is intimately connected to the Revolutionary war,
having housed General Putnam and hosted General Washington
for lunch. The house has long been associated with General
Israel Putnam and his heroic escape from the British during
the Revolutionary War. General Putnam was Sam Meeker's General
in the novel.
The British landed
on this beach in 1777. From here they marched north through
Redding where they halted for several hours before their attack
on Danbury Connecticut's military depot. Tim describes their
visit in the novel.
