Chats on the Past: Walter Woodward
June 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Fridays are for fascinating forums! Join us for a Live discussion on Zoom with Connecticut State Historian, Walter Woodward who will discuss his new book Creating Connecticut: Critical Moments That Shaped a Great State before taking questions from viewers.
Woodward helps us understand how people and events in Connecticut’s past played crucial roles in forming the culture and character of Connecticut today. Woodward, a gifted story-teller, 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. Whether it’s his investigation into the unusually rough justice meted out to Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale, or a peek into Mark Twain’s smoking habits, Creating Connecticut will leave you thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way.
