Litchfield Road, Harwinton, CT 06791. Phone: 860-482-7978.

ABOLITIONISM MOVEMENT BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR--Of all the antebellum reform movements before the Civil War, none was more controversial than abolition of slavery. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone in the North joined the crusade to end slavery. And, even more shocking, the abolitionists were condemned, assailed, and even attacked in the North for decades for their extreme radicalism. The Harwinton Historical Society will sponsor a program on this topic on March 6, 2016 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. at the Harwinton Library on Bentley Drive. Join Dr. Karl Valois, from the University of Connecticut, for an eye-opening discussion of the origins of abolitionism, its major historical figures, its radical views, and its lasting legacy in American history.
