The Ridgefield Historical Society and the Ridgefield Library present an exciting new lecture by Ed Hynes. In War on Long Island Sound during the American Revolution Hynes reveals the action, intrigue and terror of the people living around Long Island Sound during America’s War for Independence.  With the Connecticut and Long Island coasts less than 10 miles apart in many sections of the Sound, raiders crossed every fair night either to smuggle and/or steal goods; and kidnap or kill enemies.  Spies, on both sides, rounded out this dangerous cast of characters. 

Edward Hynes, CFA is a native of Wilton, CT.  He and his wife have traveled extensively to various battlefields around the country and overseas.  In addition to his interest in history, Ed works as a Merrill Lynch Financial Advisor in Westport, Connecticut.
