Random information on the term “Wit”:
The Hartford Wits were a group of young writers from Connecticut.
Originally the Connecticut Wits, this group formed in the late eighteenth century as a literary society at Yale College and then assumed a new name, the Hartford Wits. Their writings satirized an outmoded curriculum and, more significantly, society and the politics of the mid-1780s. Their dissatisfaction with the Articles of Confederation appeared in “The Anarchiad” (1786–1787), written by David Humphreys, Joel Barlow, John Trumbull (poet) (the oldest one), and Lemuel Hopkins. In satirizing democratic society, this mock-epic promoted the federal union delineated by the 1787 Federal Convention at Philadelphia.
Despite writing in a satiric tone, some of the Wits—in particular, Humphreys and Barlow—joined the Continental army. Moreover, Timothy Dwight IV became a minister, serving as chaplain to the Connecticut Continental Brigade along with writing poems and songs. Dwight wrote several songs devoted to the soldiers of the Revolution, including “Columbia”.
