It Happened in Connecticut tells more than two dozen true tales of famous--and infamous--people and events from the state’s past, ranging from witchcraft trials to the Wiffle ball, from mass murder for profit to the modern game of football.
Thank you to Diana McCain for these twenty-five forays into the big house of Connecticut history. Her writing is clear and the episodes well chosen. Taken together, they prove that what I didn’t know about my own state could fill a book.”
