Connecticut’s Role in WWI

May 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$5.00

Join Christine Pittsley from the Connecticut State Library’s “Remembering World War I: Sharing History/Preserving Memories” project to explore what was happening here on the home front  as our soldiers fought in the trenches.  Learn how not only Connecticut but Norwalk contributed to the war effort.

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.
