The bone size indicates they were probably men, he said: One of the other reasons Bellantoni and his team believe the bones belong to Revolutionary War soldiers is that they found five buttons. No weapons were found.
The town is the site of the Battle of Ridgefield in April 1777: If confirmed, the discovery would be the first time that Revolutionary War-era soldiers from the field of battle have been recovered in Connecticut, he said: The original house was built around 1790, according to Sharon Dunphy, president of the the Ridgefield Historical Society……….Several additions were made to the home over the years, one of which was built over the burial site.
