Coming and Going

The Silas Deane Home in Wethersfield Conn. Washington visited June 29, 1775 and dined with Deane's wife. He was on his way to Boston and joining the Army in Cambridge. Deane was in France trying to gain aid for the new American cause.

The Webb Home next door was used by Washington on May 19 thru May 24, 1781. Washington met with General Knox, Gov. Trumbull, and Count de Rochambeau to plan an attack on New York. They all left moving towards New York City, but events were starting to unfold in the South.
