CT State Historian Walt Woodward Virtual Event! Feb. 25th
February 25 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Windsor Historical Society, 96 Palisado Ave
Windsor, CT 06095 United States
Windsor Historical Society invites you to join the second in a fascinating season of virtual history programs – featuring Connecticut State Historian Walter Woodward from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 25, for “Creating Connecticut: Critical Moments That Shaped a Great State.”
This promises to be a rousing virtual discussion of events that shaped our state – from the earliest people (including John Mason) to the latest. Walt 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. Woodward connects past and contemporary events and will leave you thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way!
Presented via Zoom, these programs provide opportunities to learn as well as to participate and share your own questions or stories. Advanced registration is required, program fee is $5- register at windsorhistoricalsociety.org, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 860-688-3813.
