Writers Group



Phil Giffin, Steamboat Writers Group member has completed the first transcription of his distant ancestor’s 220-page Diary written during the American Revolution. He has spent the last 7 years researching his ancestor’s regiment.  During 2018 he published six stories online based on that diary in the Journal of the American Revolution (see allthingsliberty.com/author/Phillip-r-giffin/

To his delight he has discovered that his distant ancestor served in a particularly literate unit, the 9th CT Rgt Continental Army.  The descendants of Regimental Col. SB Webb left us a collection of 6 volumes of letters, notes, and diaries and the descendants of his unit Major Ebenezer Huntington left us 4 volumes about their families, their hometown (Wethersfield, CT) and their activities during the Revolution. 

Phil is currently finishing a book, “A Tapestry of the Revolution,” in which he is weaving together the many perspectives available on the lives and activities of these extraordinary patriots.
