Illustrated Guide to Putnam Memorial Camp free pdf Excerpt from Illustrated Guide to Putnam Memorial Camp: With a Complete History of the Encampment, Incidents, Organization of the Brigades, Itinerary- Etc On the sitting of the Connecticut Legislature in January, 1887, the following resolution was adopted: Resolved by this Assembly, that a committee consisting of one Senator and four Representatives be appointed to investigate and report at once on the practicability and desirability of obtaining for the State the old Israel Putnam Camp Grounds in the town of Redding, on which traces of said encampment still exist, and the erecting thereon of a suitable monument or memorial. The resolution passed, and Senator Cole of Bethel, Messrs. Bartram of Sharon, Gorham of Redding, Wessells of Litchfield, and Barbour of Branford, of the House, were appointed a committee to visit the grounds and report. Early in February this committee, accompanied by a number of interested members, proceeded to Redding. They were met at the station by a delegation of citizens of Redding and escorted to the winter quarters which they inspected. To this committee, by request, Mr. Charles B.Todd presented a plan for the lay out of the grounds, which we take from an article on the winter quarters in the New York Evening Post of that date, and which was widely copied by State papers: It is not proposed to erect a pleasure park, but a memorial. The men it is designed to commemorate were strong, rugged, simple. Its leading features, therefore, should be of similar character and of such an historical and antiquarian cast as to direct the thought to the men and times it commemorates. The rugged natural features in which the proposed site abounds should be retained. I would throw over the brooks arched stone bridges with stone parapets such as the troops marched over in their campaigns through the Hudson valley. The heaps of stone marking the limits of the encampment should be left undisturbed as one of the most interesting features of the place. One might be reconstructed and shown as it was while in use.
