2/18/21 @ 12:30 PM AARP Virtual U Lecture: The Challenging Road of the CT 29th Black Civil War Regiment

The iconic film Glory made famous the story of the Massachusetts 54th Black Civil War regiment. No less important, but not nearly so well known, is that of the Connecticut 29th Black regiment. Among the first Union soldiers to enter a fallen Richmond in 1865, the 29th have not always been lauded or even acknowledged.  Join Central CT State University Professor Matt Warshauer, (formerly the co-chair of the CT Civil War Commemoration Commission) for an intriguing look at the 29th.
