In honor of Veterans Day, John Mills, an independent scholar and president of the Alex Breanne Corporation (a Connecticut-based non-profit researching the lives of the enslaved), will present "Individuals of Connecticut's Colored Regiments" at the New Haven Museum on Thursday, November 9, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. A pre-lecture reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. The FREE event will also stream on FB Live.
During his presentation, Mills will delve into the lives and experiences of some of the men who enlisted in the 29th Rgt., explore the current understanding of them, and challenge how the nation recognizes their unique sacrifices today.
Mill's own ancestral ties to those who fought in the Civil War spurred his interest in the topic. He hopes the presentation will spark discussion and deeper thought and challenge audience perceptions.
