Join us for a special lecture by Connecticut State Historian, Dr. Walter Woodward. Connecticut in 1818 was in many ways similar to Connecticut in 2018: a troubled state, seeking a new direction. This lecture will highlight the perfect storm of crises-environmental, economic, demographic, religious, and political-that converged in the middle of the 1810s, forcing the state to rethink the ways it had been conducting affairs. The comprehensive nature of the problem, and the accidental events that ultimately produced the constitutional transformation offer essential insights for our equally challenging time.
