This is from one of my Woodbridge cousins who is a veterinarian. Thought it was interesting. It is our connection to the Revolutionary War.

"I had to go to Long Island, New York for two weeks training in Foreign Animal Disease in March. We were on the east end of Long Island. On the weekend, three of us took the ferry to New London, CT and rented a car. We went to see the Nautilus Museum at Groton. As we came into the sound we could see a large obelisk on the highest hill. I asked several people if they new anything about a memorial or museum about the Groton Massacre. Nobody knew anything. We decided to see what the large obelisk was. We could see it from about anywhere in town. As it turned out, it is the monument to the Fort Griswold massacre. The names of the soldiers are a large bronze plaque. I found the name of Christopher and Henry Woodbridge as killed in the battle September 6, 1781. The museum was closed for the winter. After I got home I looked on the web and found a web site that has some more info. it is www.revwar.com/ftgriswold/ Thought you might be interested."
