The Most Famous Private in George Washington’s Continental Army

Sponsored by: Branford Historical Society

Tim Chaucer will portray Joseph Plumb Martin as a 70 year old man recalling his days as a much younger man during the Revolutionary War. Martin was one of very few soldiers who stayed with Washington almost the entire length of the war. He wrote his memoirs at age 70 when he came to realize that Americans did not know about the intense suffering of the average continental soldier during the years 1776-1783.
