A letter from Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, dated May 4 1777, announced the Danbury Raid to General George Washington. During the raid, the British army destroyed the supplies stored in Danbury for Washington's army. Much of the food, tents and munitions were supplied by Governor Jonathan Trumbull over the course of the war. The Danbury Raid and subsequent Battle of Ridgefield were the only inland attacks by the British in Connecticut during the Revolutionary War.
