Show Notes

Over two and a half centuries ago, when the early settlers had just begun building their lives in the wilds of Windham, Connecticut, a highly discordant event took place. It all started on a summer's night, in June 1754. 

Most of the 250 or so residents of the little hamlet had retired for the night. The worries of raising crops, keeping food on the table, and staying safe from the Indians were ever present. But life in the colonies was not for the slacker or the faint of heart. So, sweet slumber had overtaken most. And then it began. 

At first, it was a low, deep rumble. Some thought it was an earthquake. But the sound just continued, and increased in intensity. Folks were moving from curiosity to fear. Some said they could feel their bed frames shuddering. Some heard drums, or the sound of trumpets. Others were sure it was the great day of judgment.
