Connecticut furnished nearly half of her male population to serve in the Revolutionary War. Of the 33,000 men who served, 3500 were “of color” and of those about 600 can be identified as Indian.
The majority of Connecticut’s Indian soldiers were from the Mohegan tribe which resided in New London County. One half of Connecticut’s population lived in New London County.
A census of the tribe taken in 1782 lists 9 Mohegans who were killed during the Revolutionary War. Five of them were sons of the widow Rebecca Tanner.
The war served to decimate the already small Indian population which suffered a very high percentage of casualties.
The Mohegan Tribe still exists today. You can visit their website here: http://www.mohegan.nsn.us/
In addition to the Mohegan, several Pequot served along with 1 Groton, Tunxis, Narragansett and Huron Indian, each, and 3 Nipmuc.
Today there are two Pequot tribes, an Eastern and a Western Tribe, in different locations in Connecticut. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pequot
