Creating Connecticut: Critical Moments That Shaped a Great State.
On February 25, 7 PM to 8:30 PM, Join Connecticut State Historian Walter Woodward for a rousing virtual discussion of events that shaped our state – from the earliest people (including John Mason) to the latest. Woodward brings the history we thought we knew to life in new ways, from the nearly forgotten early presence of the Dutch, to the time when Connecticut was New England’s fiercest prosecutor of witches, the decades when "Nutmeggers" were rapidly leaving the state, and the years when Irish immigrants were hurrying into it. Walt Woodward connects past and contemporary events and will leave you thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way!
