Ties to the Caribbean in the Ancient Burying Ground

This program, presented by Dr. Katherine A. Hermes, features a variety of diverse stories that illuminate the people who built connections between Connecticut and the Caribbean. This includes Connecticut merchants looking for new markets and products; enslaved people from Antigua serving in households in Hartford; a West Indian enslaved man brought to Guilford who later opened a thriving grocery story in Hartford; and a French woman fleeing the Haitian Revolution. Examine the shipping news from the Hartford Courant, as well as documents from probate records, newspapers, vital records, and account books that hold the keys to uncovering this history.
