Wilton Historical Society - From Civil War to Revolution

224 Danbury Rd., Wilton, CT Phone: 203-762-7257.

Lecturer- Matthew Warshauer 4:00 - 5:30 at the Wilton Historical Society In this final lecture of the 8th annual collaboration between the Wilton Library and the Wilton Historical Society, Matthew Warshauer, Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University, will explore the remarkable and fast-paced changes to American life in the aftermath of the Civil War. Mass production during the conflict caused the nation to travel from the edge of industrialization to full blown industrial revolution. The nature of work changed drastically, as did home life, as millions moved from farm to city. Was it the Gilded Age or industrialized poverty? What was government's role and responsibility in this new economy? How much should government then and now be involved in the nation's economic future?
