Soldiers, camp followers, enslaved people, and Native people huddled together during the winter of 1778-1779 in Redding, Connecticut, under the command of Gen. Israel Putnam. They produced no documents at the time of the encampment, but throughout their lives, and posthumously, documents by and about them were created. These are excerpts from that documentary record.
