"Gold Selleck Silliman, a lawyer of Fairfield, Connecticut, found himself charged with the defense of the State's vulnerable southwesterly seacoast during the Revolution. He was simultaneously a Colonel of Horse and a Brigadier General in the local militia. He saw active and hazardous service both in his own state and in New York, where he joined in the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, and White Plains. He also took part in the assault on Fort Independence." - p. 7.
