READFIELD PATRIOTS OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR: “JONNY HAS GONE FOR A SOLDIER”

Soon after the first shot was fired at Lexington, exactly 243 years ago, nineteen men from Winthrop, ages 14 to 46, picked up arms and marched off to fight for independence. Some had also fought in the French & Indian War. Several of them were living in the part of Winthrop that later became Readfield (1791) and North Manchester (1850). Over the years more than ninety Patriots lived in Readfield and many are buried here. In this presentation you will hear some of their stories.
