Village Markets Time spent waiting for artillery and supply wagons was not wasted. At their campsites in Plainfield and Windham, the French troops entertained the local population from miles around with band concerts and spent much coveted silver at impromptu village markets which sprang up around the camps. "We lived well during our passage through this province," wrote a Frenchman in his journal. "The Americans crowded around, not only to hear the bands, but also loaded with every sort of produce, so that the camp was a continual market, offering the most delicious wares."   Photo by Jack McConnell
Samuel Dorrance Inn The inn is in the Sterling Hill section of today's town of Sterling (referred to as "Voluntown" by the French). In addition to the military aspects, the march brought together the French soldiers and their American hosts in a number of social settings, chief among them the various homes and inns along the route where French officers stayed. The encounters at the Samuel Dorrance inn seem to have been particularly memorable, as the house is one of the few that is mentioned repeatedly in French sources.   Photo by John Muldoon
