REVOLUTION AND REFUGEES... a Saturday morning round table with Society Historian Ken Reiss (5 one hour sessions) | January 28th - February 25 | 9:30-11am

posted Dec 22, 2016, 10:31 AM by Julie Johnston   [ updated Jan 26, 2017, 8:53 AM ]
Join Ken Saturday mornings for a unique opportunity to use the Society's collection of original Revolutionary War-era documents as points of departure from which to explore the civil war that raged along Long Island Sound for eight terrible years. 

We'll see what Middlesex Parish was and was not; how and why the community divided its loyalties with such violent results; the impact the larger war had on our area; and how the pieces were gathered up at the end. 

Limited to 12 participants. Admission is free for patron members ($250) and up, $50 for members, $100 for non-members.

Reservations can be made with Ulla Kremer at (203) 655-9233 or ukremer@darienhistorical.org.
