The War of 1812: Connecticut and It's People...
This is an old event, from 2012
Lecture by Betty Odenwald, Connecticut Society, US Daughters of 1812 The War of 1812 is often called the "forgotten war". However, to some historians, it is the end of the American Revolution. It established the American right to trade and commerce, it was the spur to Western expansion, and it provided a new sense of nationalism and pride. In 2012, the United States is celebrating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. In New Milford, there are 30 veterans from this war buried throughout our local cemeteries who we want to remember for their service and sacrifice. This engaging lecture will discuss Connecticut as a supporter of the War of 1812 and the approximately 6,000 militia, soldiers and sailors who fought for our freedom. Mrs. Odenwald is from Fairfield, Connecticut and is the President of the Connecticut Society, U.S. Daughters of 1812.
