Lecture and book signing

Author David Drury traces the multifaceted story of Hartford during World War I. The city hosted major rallies and recruitment drives. Colt’s Firearms, a local manufacturer, worked around the clock to meet the demand of war materials. Men and women from the area battled in the trenches, volunteered in the hospitals and canteens and served in the air and on the high seas.
