Unlike neighboring settlements that formed individually, Redding was originally part of the town of Fairfield. Redding's early years were interrelated with the local Indians and their chief, Chickens Warrop. The War of Independence first touched Redding on April 26, 1777. The author has provided two slightly different accounts of this conflict while Redding's involvement in the Civil War is documented in excerpts from town meetings. Includes biographical sketches.
