misc_none 5:30 PM  -  7:00 PM Fort Griswold History Retold by Michael Carroll Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Madhu Gupta   8604471411   mgupta@plnl.org
   
 Fort Griswold, located in Groton, CT, is not only a local landmark but definitely should be recognized as a national treasure.  What is commonly referred as the 'Battle of Fort Griswold', took place on September 6th, 1781, during the American Revolutionary War.  Claiming many American and British lives, it was the last battle in the State of Connecticut, as well as one of the last battles of the entire War.  Many books have been written about the events surrounding the battle and the people involved.  Families have clung on to popular stories, passed down from generations.  But, what if some of those claims aren't are that accurate?  What if things didn't happen exactly as they are held onto? 
 
  Upon starting his research a few years ago, Michael Caroll was told that he'd never find anything new.  That everything has already been done and found.  Taking that 'challenge', Michael traveled to many local, state, and federal institutions to uncover what he knew was out there...the truth!  
 
  This presentation will document the findings in his work as well as serve the public in the correction of the misinformation that is out there.  In addition to that, you'll learn how to conduct better research techniques, networking skills, and self skills as well.  
 
This will be a very educational presentation but also but full of respectful fun too.  Open to all ages but please note that we are dealing with human tragedy and sometimes, the information will be graphic in nature.

About the Presenter: Michael Carroll is a historian and researcher, most notably in the American Revolutionary War time period, running up through the American Civil War period.  Michael is a natural born historian and has a passion for digging up facts and stories that are seemingly lost to the sands of time.  Getting permission to access rare documents, making new contacts, and speaking to the public, his goals are to educate the general public on the accuracy of facts and correct the misinformation that is commonplace, both online and in print.  His work has spanned many years and he strives to continue it, no matter how hard it is to get to the bottom of the story.
