Remembering Groton by Carol W Kimball

Book Description

Famous for its submarine base and centuries of maritime lore, Groton also has been home to some of Connecticut's most historic and heroic personalities. In this collection, meet the patriotic "Mother" Bailey, who handed over her petticoat on the spot when a soldier approached her for war supplies in 1812, and John Bull, the Eskimo who traveled from the Arctic to testify on behalf of whaling captain John Spicer. From the self-proclaimed prophetess Jemima Wilkinson, who founded her own religious colony, to the millionaire Morton Plant, who built the Griswold Hotel, hailed as "the finest summer resort in America," Remembering Groton highlights the people and events that shaped this Thames River town into the vibrant and industrious community we know today.
