In honor of Veteran’s Day!
Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 2:00pm
Mill Hill Historic Park Townhouse – 2 East Wall Street Norwalk, CT. PARKING AT MILL HILL: Handicapped and Limited Mobility parking on site only. For general parking, please follow signs to parking across the street.
Local historian Eric Chandler will do an encore presentation of his lecture entitled: “Jewish Participation in the American Revolution – Red, White and Jewish” which shares the stories of the Children of Abraham who fought for separation from England. Explore the role played by those Jews who took up arms and endured the hardships and hazards alongside their Christian neighbors and endangered themselves as intelligence gatherers, toiled to ensure a steady supply of food and war materiel and worked tirelessly as financiers to bring about the Noble Experiment that still endures two-hundred and forty years later. Although the Jews in Colonial America represented a small minority of the overall population, their contributions, individually and collectively, were significant beyond their meager numbers.
