Tories, Spies, and Traitors: Divided Loyalty in Revolutionary Connecticut

April 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tories, Spies, and Traitors: Divided Loyalty in Revolutionary Connecticut
APR 10, 2024 6:00 PM–07:00 PM

Which side are you on? That’s the question that every single person in Connecticut had to answer in 1775, as the thirteen colonies began a rebellion against British rule. Loyalty was not only a matter of words or opinion. For soldiers and civilians alike, loyalty could mean loss of fortune, of friends, and even of life. This presentation reveals stories – some well known, some obscure – of Nutmeggers who risked and sacrificed to support their chosen side during this “tumultuous jarring time of civil war.”

Join us for this fascinating talk with Mya Concepcion who is a Museum Educator at the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History. She develops and teaches educational programs for school and adult audiences. Mya has had experience in both education and museums in CT and holds a B.A. in Art and Art History from the University of Hartford.
