On September 6, 1781, Groton and New London, Connecticut were attacked by a superior force of British infantrymen, led by Brigadier General Benedict Arnold. Arriving on 24 sailing vessels from New York, two divisions totaling about 1600 soldiers disembarked at the mouth of the Thames River. Half of the troups marched up the west bank of the river and burned virtually all the homes and warehouses of New London to the ground. All the 18th and 19th century accounts of these battles are long out of print. The Battle of Groton Heights by Charles Allyn published in 1881 remains the most definitive and complete records of these events.
