Overview

New Haven, Connecticut: From Puritanism to the Age of Terrorism (Making of America Series) by Michael Sletcher


From the days of the Quinnipiack Indians and the arrival of the first Puritan settlers in 1638, a fascinating cycle of prosperity, decline, and renewal has played out in the streets of New Haven and the quads of Yale University. Home to President Lincoln's bodyguard and the constitutional delegate whose compromise led to our nation's bicameral legislature, this Connecticut city has been the stage for a dramatic story of immigration, industry, and defiance.
