Join Christine Pittsley from the Connecticut State Library's “Remembering World War One” project to explore what was happening here on the home front as our soldiers fought in the trenches. Connecticut was known as “the Arsenal of the Nation” during World War I. It is believed that Connecticut factories produced more than half of all munitions used by the Allied Forces. Yet Connecticut played other roles as well, ones that are just now being revealed. Learn about how our war governor, Marcus Holcomb, prepared the state for war and how Connecticut’s Council of Defense became one of the largest and most effective in the nation. From Liberty Loan campaigns and victory gardens to local soldiers and nurses on the front lines learn about the ways Connecticut contributed to winning the war. The lecture will conclude with a Q & A session.

Christine Pittsley has been the Project Director for Connecticut State Library’s award winning World War One programs, including the Digging Into History trench restoration project and the Remembering World War One Digitization program. She was Connecticut’s liaison to the United States World War One Centennial Commission and has been recognized as a leader in the nation's commemorative efforts. She has worked at the State Library since 2008 and created and led the archival and museum digitization and metadata programs. She has been involved in a number of statewide digital initiatives and serves on the Connecticut Militia Heritage Council and served on the boards of the Association for the Study of Connecticut History, Cheshire Historical Society, and Cheshire Historic District Commission.

The Weston Historical Society would like to thank its annual sponsors: Fairfield County Bank and KMS Partners at Compass.
