About This Project
the Connecticut Tourism Board announced the state’s new motto, “It’s
Still Revolutionary,” in the summer of 2012,
Professor Mary Collins,
a professional travel writer, and Sal Lilienthal, the director and
owner of the
Company, approached the
Upper Housatonic Valley Heritage Area and the
Connecticut Historical Society
about producing guided American Revolution-themed tours for the
state. Unlike other historical guides currently on the market in
Connecticut, this guide does not simply provide a short history on
important sites. Instead, it connects the dots between various sites
to build a narrative for each route.
Metta Rehnberg Delmore from the Roger Sherman Connecticut Daughters of the American Revolution chapter helped us with our grant application for the national DAR chapter. Rod Waterman provided invaluable assistance for a CCSU/AAUP grant.
