Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Seventh Camp at Farmington. 25-28 June 1781. Twelve and a half miles from the preceding camp at East Hartford. This map shows only the southern part of Farmington's Main Street (cf. map of the 1782 camp, No. 149, which includes the northern part of the street). The brook at the bottom of the map, flowing under the road and into the larger stream at the right (Pequabuck), is Diamond Glen Brook. The camp ("a mile from Farmington," according to Itinerary 2, above) was on the west side of the main road (present Route 10) just beyond its junction with Scott Swamp Road (present Route 6).


The documents and maps are arranged chronologically by packet/item number that continue (for the most part) the numbering begun in the previous series.


These papers are housed in the original red portfolio cases (and order) in which they were presented to the Library in 1939.
