  • America’s Path Into World War II

    America came out of its isolationist feeling in a hurry in December 1941. But perhaps it was not that sudden after all; there were many events that brought us to that brink.

    Newtown Historical Society will look at the events leading up to World War II, the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the first year of the war, in a program on Tuesday, October 15, at 7:30 pm, in the lower meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street. The illustrated presentation, “‘Til  Boots Hit The Ground,” will be made by Peter Cronin.
