Behind the Scenes: Fort Saybrooke

Here are some pictures I took from Fort Saybrooke last summer. This is one of the locations in my novel, and I didn’t even realize that this park existed even though I grew up a few towns over. It was an important location in the Pequot War.

This is one of many reasons why our public school curriculum needs massive updating, particularly in the humanities. Did you know I never even knew the Pequot War happened until a few years ago?
