But what year? You ask. What happened on those dates? You want to know.
You’ll have to purchase a copy of On This Day in Connecticut History to find out!
We are very pleased to announce that Gregg Mangan, Manager of Digital Humanities for ConnecticutHistory.org at CT Humanities and author of On This Day, has dug up some serious gems here and each day of the year highlights one of them. You may purchase a copy through Amazon.com (naturally) or through HistoryPress. If you choose to buy a copy through Amazon, would you consider signing up for Amazon Smile and making a painless donation to CT Humanities? We would really appreciate it (and so would Gregg!).
