Battle of Munnacommock Swamp / “Pequot Swamp Fight”

July 13-14, 1637

The Fairfield Museum and History Center has embarked on an exciting new project in conjunction with the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP), Connecticut Office of the State Archaeologist, the Connecticut State Historian and local institutions to study the last battle of the Pequot War: The Battle of Munnacommock Swamp (July 13-14, 1637)  fought in present-day Southport, CT.

Education and consensus-building are major components of this project.  Preserving and protecting surviving Pequot War sites requires the cooperation and participation of landowners, town officials, local historians, and the general public.  Members of our research team will work to cultivate strong relationships with everyone in the community to ensure the success of this project. 

Listed below are some downloadable forms for Southport landholders. If you would like to know more about this project and upcoming programs please contact Katy Reed at kreed@fairfieldhs.org or by phone at (860) 396 – 6868.
