Facing War: Connecticut in World War One ~ Virtual Program for Adults

Facing War-courtesy of CHSWhat was life like on the home front during WWI? Connecticut played a key role in manufacturing even before the United States joined the global conflict in 1917. The war and its aftermath left a permanent mark on our state and its citizens. Taylor McClure of the Connecticut Historical Society will teach us about this dramatic time during which CT confronted women’s demand for the vote, a deadly flu epidemic, and mass immigration  all while sending thousands of men and women to the front. Registration begins September 9, online or by calling the Reference Department at 860-652-7720. Registration with a valid email address is required in order to receive login information on the day of the Zoom meeting.
