Putnam Memorial State Park
This park commemorates the three winter encampments in 1778 - 79 of Major General Isreal Putnam's division of Continental Army troops during the Revolutionary War. The memorial park was created on the actual site of one of the three encampments.
Gen. Washington positioned his troops in a crescent shape around the British army in NY City. The troops camped in Redding were used to protect the Long Island Sound, the Hudson Highlands and, especially, the military stores at the Army Supply Depot in Danbury.
This camp housed Brig. General Poor's New Hampshire Brigade and the 2nd Canadian Regiment under Col. Moses Hazen. The camp was built to hold over 1300 troops. The other two camps held the 1st and 2nd Connecticut Brigades (which contained eight regiments).
