This is a fascinating walk through Connecticut’s own Valley Forge. Set in a beautiful, historic park, this is a walk for all abilities. Putnam Memorial State Park comprises more than 250 acres and includes one of the best-preserved winter campsites of the Revolutionary War. The entrance to the park is dominated by a dynamic, larger-than-life bronze statue of General Putnam on his majestic horse, created by sculptor Ann Hyatt Huntington when she was ninety-three years old. The sculpture depicts the general as he made his dramatic mounted escape from pursuing British dragoons, down the one hundred steps carved into the precipice at Horse Neck, Greenwich, 1779. The main gate is flanked by two high blockhouses guarding the gateway. Enter the gate and stop to pick up a detailed map available just inside the entrance on the right in a wooden box. Ascend to the crest of a hill past an obelisk made of native granite, crowned by a huge cannonball.
