Overview
For more than two hundred years, New Haven, Connecticut, has had a particular proclivity for marking the passage of time. Residents of the Elm City celebrate their heritage in historic fashion, and they have carefully preserved fascinating relics from their city's past in local museums. Examine the first commemorative medal made for New Haven's 200th anniversary in 1838, which set the standard for Elm City celebrations. Other artifacts in the city's collections include a needlework picture mourning the death of George Washington, Noah Webster's dictionary notes for the letters "A" and "B" and the buckskin coat worn by explorer Henry Eld. Author Laura A. Macaluso chronicles the history of New Haven celebrations and prized artifacts in order to piece together the city's unique identity.
