September 11th we stop to remember the attacks on that fateful day in 2001. We should never forget that devastating day in US history when thousands of innocent lives were lost.
September 11th also marks a date in Connecticut history when men and boys mustered into service with the Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. This date was of such significance to them that the Winsted Soldiers' Monument was dedicated on that date in 1890.
Please join the Soldiers Monument Commission members at the monument on Sunday, September 11th from 2-4 when we proudly
present a program at 2:15 entitled:
Men of Valor: Winchester Men in the Mountain County Regiment, 1862-1865.
This will be a brief overview of the battles the 19th CVI (also known as the CT Heavies and affectionately referred to as the Mountain County Regiment) participated in along with biographical sketches of some of the soldiers.
Following the presentation, we invite you to join us for an ice cream social on the grounds of our beautiful monument.
