“Into History?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Amazing staff. Simply amazing. And the archives are beyond amazing when researching Connecticut history. If nothing else, just stop by and browse the collections, some of which are extremely old and require wearing gloves to view. Amazing for true historians, especially for the Revolutionary War period and Connecticut's role...
