Connecticut's role in Civil War topic of Haddam History Talk
HADDAM >> The Civil War is the focus of the next book talk and guest lecturer program at the town’s library.
The Haddam Historical Society will present the fourth program in its book series, “History and Human Rights Perspectives on Connecticut: Sagas, Scandals, Spirits and Slavery,” which showcases new and recent works of nonfiction of particular relevance to Connecticut residents and readers.
Historian Matthew Warshauer of Central Connecticut State University in New Britain will discuss both his new collection of essays, “Inside Connecticut and the Civil War: Essays on One’s State’s Struggles,” and his earlier book, “Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival,” both published by Wesleyan University Press in Middletown.
Warshauer’s new collection of essays has an image of Haddam Civil War veterans on the cover from the collection of the Haddam Historical Society.
