Monument Madness With WHS: The Minute Man And Battle Of Compo

Westport Historical Society
4/20/17
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
westporthistory.org

On Thursday, April 20, from 12 to 1 pm, walk back in time to the turn of the 20th century with Town Curator Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, as she talks about The Minute Man Monument and its unveiling in 1910 as a commemoration of the colonists’ heroic efforts in the Danbury Raid. Learn how this iconic symbol of our town joined other monuments commemorating Revolutionary War battles at Concord and Lexington as a way to instill civic and national pride in the founding of our country for citizens still haunted by the events of the Civil War and coping with unprecedented immigration.

Please call for reservations at 203-222-1424. Donation for this event is $10.
