Faith Trumbull Huntington: An 18th Century Woman and the Revolutionary War

Faith Trumbull was an exceptional woman living in extraordinary times.

During the Siege of Boston, in 1775, she traveled to the Patriot encampment in Roxbury
and unknowingly arrived on the day of the brutal Battle of Bunker Hill. What happened to her after that?

Researcher Margaret Meahl’s presentation is based on the Trumbull and Huntington family archives
at the Connecticut Historical Society, with details culled from primary and  secondary sources.  Her talk
sheds light on girls’ education, religion, colonial American women, the Revolutionary War, mental illness,
funerals, and family.  Join us to learn about Faith Trumbull Huntington’s brief but full life.
