For our Fall program and Annual Meeting on Saturday, September 24, we return to the accessible Windsor Historical Society. Our speaker will be State Historian Walter Woodward, whose topic will be "The Cost of Battles Not Fought: Wars and Rumors of War in Early New England." This thought-provoking and image-rich presentation looks at the role rumors played in the early wars between English settlers and the native people whose land they occupied, focusing on the first and most shocking of these conflicts - the Pequot War of 1636-1637.
