Hartford County
Connecticut, USA
Death: 1854

Daniel Spencer was a dark-haired young shoemaker from Pomfret, Conn. On July 8, 1780, exactly one month before turning 21, he began his service in Capt. John McGregier's Company of the 4th Infantry Regiment, Connecticut Continental Line. The outfit had suffered through the harsh winter at Valley Forge
By July 4, 1853, those days of hardship and danger were relegated to the dim past. Daniel Spencer basked in celebrity as one of the last surviving soldiers of the Revolution. He was honored for being part of that brave band of Americans whose sacrifice paid for our country's freedom. He died a year later
