    Excerpt from Simsbury's Part in the War of the American Revolution

    The Simsbury of Revolutionary days was larger than the Simsbury of to-day by the area of the towns of Granby, East Granby, Bloomfield, and a part of the town of Canton. The original boundaries of the town were from the Farmington boundary north ten miles, and from the Windsor boundary west ten miles.

    There is in existence a map of the town which was made out not far from the year 1730. The main road leading from Avon north to Salmon brook, together with the roads running easterly, appear very much as at present. The total number of houses given on this map is one hundred and sixty-two. Fifty-eight of these are within the limits of Granby as at present defined, and one hundred and four within the present limits of Sims bury. Now supposing that we allow ten persons to a house, which certainly is not a large estimate for that time of large families, the population of the town in1730 could not have been far from sixteen or seventeen hundred persons.

    They were all of English blood; children of the Magna Charta, and the Puritan England of Hampden and Cromwell. They were inured to every conceivable hardship and danger by years of con¿ict with savage nature and no less savage men. Far from kings' courts and standing armies and popes and bishops they had learned to govern both church and state according to the will of the majority. They were desperate fighters, sternly religious and moral, good organizers, and inde pendent thinkers.
