Walter W. Woodward, Connecticut state historian and associate professor of early American history at the University of Connecticut, will discuss the War of 1812 at a meeting of the Senior Men's Club of New Canaan Friday, July 25, at 10 a.m. in Morrill Hall at St. Mark's Church.
Woodward will explain why the War of 1812 was the most hated war in Connecticut history and the many ways the state fiercely resisted the federal war effort.
Woodward is the author of an award-winning book, numerous articles on New England history and is a regular columnist for Connecticut Explored magazine. He recently co-authored "Teaching History with Museums: Strategies for K-12 Social Studies."
