Yantic River, Connecticut
New London county. This stream rises by several branches in the northwest part of the county, and passing in a southeast course meets the united waters of the Quinnebaug and Shetucket at Norwich, where the waters of the three rivers fall with great rapidity, forming the Thames, and producing a valuable hydraulic power. See Norwich.
It is said that a party of Mohegan Indians plunged themselves down the Yantic falls when pursued by their foes, the Narragansets.
