This is 1 of 7 posts of photographs that I took during a recent trip to Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding, CT.

I made a copy of the park map and self-guided walking tour for the site, which can be seen here.

4. MAIN ENTRANCE AREA – Civil War cannons and miniature blockhouses flank the road. Blockhouses were used in frontier areas during the French and Indian War where Israel Putnam achieved fame for his courageous exploits. There are several other Civil War cannons inside the park. These weapons were surplus arms from the Civil War which ended only a few years prior to the park’s commissioning. The gateway view focuses on the Monument.
