& the Continental Army in winter quarters at Valley Forge,

Connecticut Regiment, Currently the Regiment has some
30 members, consisting of a Captain, soldier-at-arms, a Regimental
Surgeon, Surgeons mate, musicians, campfollowers and children.
We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly unit. The Regiment
became active in 1991 as an outgrowth of the Connecticut Society
of the Sons of the American Revolution. Starting as a Colour
Guard for that Organization, the 6th, while maintaining close
ties to the SAR, had become an Independent Unit by 1995. It
was felt, at that time, that there must other ways the 6th
could devote it's time and energy to the cause of educating
the publick about the American Revolution. The 6th Connecticut,
became in that year, a Living History Organization.

Sketch of Putnam Phalanx - The
command made its first bow to the public as a military body
on the 22nd of December 1858, when a street parade was given.
At this time no uniform had as yet been selected and the members
of the battalion appeared in the regimentals of the Amoskeag
Veterans which were generously loaned them by the Manchester
organization. These uniforms were of the Continental style
and very similar to those worn by the company today. At the
