2000 Connecticut

Connecticut was an  interesting trip. I spent time at Hartford, Stamford and New London. I visited the Ancient Burial Ground to view William Douglas' grave. I also took in a few historical sites in Harford, including the statue of Gov. John Winthrop Jr. I stopped to thank him as well. Winthrop was al so the family physician for my Wakeman family. Hannah Wakeman Hackleton got herself into a bit of mischief  [adultery, murder and blasphemy]. The Governor commuted the death sentence for Hannah. So here I am!

Perhaps the weirdest event was at the hotel near Stamford. Evidently, the night clerk decided to view some "adult entertainment" and it got fed to all of the rooms!
