The Role Connecticut Played During World War I Lecture
ONLINE TICKET SALES HAVE STOPPED. THERE ARE STILL TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!
Connecticut was known as the Arsenal of the Nation during World War I. It is believed that Connecticut factories produced more than half of all munitions used by the Allied Forces. Yet Connecticut played other roles as well, ones that are just now being revealed. Join Christine Pittsley from the Connecticut State Library's Remembering World War One project on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 2:00pm at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum to explore what was happening here on the home front as our soldiers fought in the trenches. Learn about how our war governor, Marcus Holcomb, prepared the state for war and how Connecticuts Council of Defense became one of the largest and most effective in the nation. From Liberty Loan campaigns and victory gardens to local soldiers and nurses on the front lines learn about the ways Norwalk contributed to winning the war.
Parking: Parking is available at Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Avenue. The museum is in the red brick house with blue double front doors, next to the Norwalk Health Department.
