Description
The monument pays tribute to this 16-year-old, and oldest of 12 children, who on the night of April 26, 1777, rode horseback through the countryside of what is now Putnam County, New York, to alert its volunteer militia to the British army’s attacking and burning of Danbury, Connecticut. These volunteer farmers-turned-fighters joined General Daniel Wooster’s forces in the battle against the British at Ridgefield, Connecticut. • Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington (1876-1973) -- noted animal sculptor, producer of equestrian monuments and resident of Connecticut -- created the bronze memorial of the youngster. Cast by Roman Bronze Works, New York, horse and rider, sitting side-saddle, stand on a stone base. • Situated on the plaza of the Danbury Public Library, Danbury, Connecticut, the work was dedicated 9/11/1971.
