Author Robert Geake will appear in the uniform of a continental soldier as he presents a rarely heard story of courage during “Connecticut Militia: The Defense of New Haven,” at the Pardee-Morris House, which was torched by Redcoats and later rebuilt by the Morris family. In-person or virtual attendance. Geake’s presentation will be based on his book, “New England Citizen Soldiers of the Revolutionary War: Minutemen and Mariners.” He notes that while many leaders and heroes of the American Revolution are renowned, lesser known are the citizen soldiers who fought in regions far removed from their homes and families or became mariners in the fight for independence. Geake will tell how ordinary citizens united in the cause for freedom and struggled to balance their loyalty to their home state, their property, and families.
