I haven't yet been able to determine just how many privateers came out of Connecticut during the Revolutionary War. (I'm sure that the answer is out there if I figure out where to look). I found a source that gave the total number of privateers commissioned as 1657, compared to only 64 Navy ships.
Apparently, the Connecticut privateers vexed the British so much that they prompted a series of events on land.

I thought that you might also like to see images of some Revolutionary War flags relating to Connecticut.
