Fashion After the Revolution

Saturday, November 3, 2018

2:00pm

 

Its been 235 years since the official end of the American Revolution.

How did becoming an independent nation influence fashion?

The Revolution is over but in wartime we vowed to give up foreign imports. Now its peacetime, and our fervor has fizzled. Lets get some more of those imported goods we used to enjoy- like pretty fabrics!

Fashion was at the center of the debates surrounding what it meant to be American in the decades after the Revolution. How did citizens of the new nation navigate this political minefield when every choice was filled with symbolic import? Who aspired to fashion as set in Europe, who achieved it, who adapted it, who eschewed it? How did Americans build credibility on the world stage maintaining their principles without looking like country bumpkins?

World War I Memorials of Connecticut

Saturday, November 10, 2018

2:00pm

Join historian Richard Franklin Donohue for a lively lecture and discussion about World War I memorials in Connecticut, with a special emphasis on Fairfield County memorials.

As the First World War ended, American communities hurried to memorialize the great efforts of their sons and daughters.  Changes in cultural and civic ideals since the American Civil War led to extensive public discourse about what memorials should and should not be.  Government leaders, artists, historians, and the monument industry itself promoted ideas from simple tablets to monoliths rivaling those of Egypt and Rome. Memorials throughout Connecticut exemplify this entire range of monumental styles.

Having visited and cataloged more than 220 monuments throughout the 169 towns in Connecticut, Richard Franklin Donohue will display images of the monuments and explore trends in their design and placement, with special emphasis placed on Norwalk and the surrounding areas.

Donations
At the event, we will be accepting donation items for the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. Please consider donating some of the following:

Toothpaste, toothbrushes, Bic-style razors, shaving cream and body wash
Men’s t-shirts, underwear and socks. All sizes needed!

Members of the American Legion Post 12 Auxiliary Poppy Program will also be accepting donations.

One hundred fifty years ago, in the summer of 1862, President Lincoln faced the specter of defeat. When Lincoln called for volunteers, a thousand men from Fairfield County enlisted in the 17th Connecticut to save the Union.
